FM – Francis MacDonald

FM My father's family, it was his mother that actually taught him how to play. And it was in her side of the family, the MacDonalds on her side of the family that were the musicians more so than my father's father's side.

KP So there were MacDonalds on both sides?

FM Yes, yes and then my mother's side of the family – Then come down to me, then, her uncles and her father played some, too. So I have fiddle history back on both sides of my families pretty well.
