WENTWORTH - Once again a great time was celebrated at the Wentworth Fiddle Do, also called music afternoon, at the Wentworth Recreation Centre on the last Sunday of the month.
Led by talented old-time fiddlers, the musicians on stage also include experts on the piano, accordion, drums, banjo, and singing. At this March 27 Fiddle Do, we welcomed one of the best country singers in Nova Scotia and Canada, Don Haggart, to sing on stage, and to have Don and his wife Diane at a table to welcome and talk to people as they came into the centre.
Many in Wentworth remembered hearing Don and Jim Haggart sing tradional, classic country songs on radio, and, since the passing of his brother Jim in September, 2006, Don has continued his performances on radio and on stage, as well as continuing to compose. Don brought with him a compact disc called Classic: Jim & Don Haggart, containing such songs as "Hard Times in The Maritimes" and "Liverpool."
