JM – Jim MacDougall

JM: There was always what they'd called a wedding shower. I can remember my oldest sister when she got married, we had borrowed this dancing booth they had for the parish for their picnics and we had it set up in our yard. Elmer Robinson played for that, and I remember Alf MacLellan on the organ. Oh yeah. At one time you couldn't have a wedding without a fiddle. It’s just - Like somebody takin' pictures today, the first thing they look for is to get somebody to take your pictures, eh when there's a wedding. Them days it was somebody to play the fiddle (laughs).
