Hearing the tapping feet put me in receptive mood right away, like a bodhran does when I listen to Irish music.  What can I say ?  The internet abounds with great Canadian fiddlers.  Is fiddling a mandatory class for elementary school students ?  Your fiddling is great to listen to.  This tune sounds like a fiddle tune should.  I can only wish I could play that well.
