Playing the Cape Breton fiddle: Natalie MacMaster and Donnell Leahy on TED.com

Natalie MacMaster and her musical partner Donnell Leahy play tunes from the Cape Breton tradition — a sprightly, soulful style of folk fiddle and piano. It’s an inspired collaboration that will have you clapping (and maybe dancing) along. (Recorded February 2003 in Monterey, California. Duration: 18:47.)
