From a comment on this site: “Kerry Elkin, late fiddler from Massachusetts, recorded these tunes and stated that he’d learned them from a cassette tape by Serge Desaynay/Gilles LeBigot called “Tunes for America” which they self-produced to sell on during a tour in the United States in the 1980’s. There were only a few of these tapes made and not many survive. They are a great resource.”
