The Flower of Port Williams
Traditional Favorites from Maritime Canada and Beyond
The Chris Norman Ensemble

DOR-90289 Cover
This CD is a shining celebration of traditional music from Quebec, Cape Breton and Scotland.   Chris performs a wide variety of reels, strathspeys, and other traditional dance tunes that conjure up images of his youth in Nova Scotia.   Chris was inspired to contribute several of his own compositions including the title track, The Flower of Port Williams, a wonderful musical tribute to his late mother.

This recording is dedicated to the Memory of
Yvonne Grace Norman (1922-1997).
