Island of Fiddlers

Fiddle Tunes of Patrick Bonner, Beaver Island, Michigan


The Great Famine of 1845 to 1850 resulted in hordes of people from Rutland and Arramore islands in Donegal emigrating from their blemished land and they found a mirror image of their beloved home on Beaver Island, Michigan.

  Patrick Bonner was born and reared on Beaver island from an emigrant family from Rutland Island and this is a collection of 111 of his tunes.
