Here is a special collection of Ukrainian dance tunes that will be enjoyed by both young and old.
This is our Heritage; our Tradition and this is our Music.
The Ukraine, Birthplace of my parents. Home to my relations: uncles, aunts and grandmother (Babushka). This is my heritage. I learned to play Ukrainian tunes as a child in Medicine Hat, Alberta.
Weddings and dances was a way of social life for Ukrainian songs; and the instrumentals made up an important part of any function. Listening to them, I am sure you will all feel the sense of excitement and activity.
As you are aware I have been a regular on the ” CBC TOMMY HUNTER SHOW.” Many of the selections on this album have been played at one time or another on the show and I hope some of your favorites are here.
Thirty assorted selections should bring you countless hours of listening and dancing enjoyment.
