Angus family is musical. Everyone has their own instrument and everyone knows how to make music. But Angus can only hum along to his family s playing, and humming isn t good enough. Angus wants to join his family s orchestra. When Angus father tells him the family will give him an instrument, he can t choose until he hears the fiddle at a "ceilidh." But fiddling is hard; he can t make the music he wants. With patience, practice, and lots of lessons, Angus fingers learn how to play, and the music inside him finds a way out. Budge Wilson s story will ring true for every young musician and is a fitting tribute to the music makers of Cape Breton. "From the Hardcover edition.""
