    Jerry started playing the fiddle aged only around 5, and was soon performing in public; by the age of ten he was a regular musician at dances! His father was a fiddle player too, and both he, and other old fiddlers such as Winston Fitzgerald, Bill Lamey, and Angus Chisholm provided great inspiration for the young player. He learnt tunes of Scottish, Irish and Cape Breton origin, and composed his own in the traditional style, many of which have become standards.

    He has toured extensively in North America, but also in Europe. His many recordings are all imbued with his passion for the music.
