Rufus! - Rufus Guinchard - Newfoundland fiddler


Northern / Maritime


"Rufus!" is a 30-minute film made in 1990 that celebrates the life and music of Newfoundland fiddler Rufus Guinchard. The film is available online, and is well worth watching in its entirety. Like Medicine Fiddle, the film helps set the music and dance in the context of the broad culture. A dance sequence, filmed in a kitchen, begins at 07:50 and lasts for about four minutes.

Basic biographical information and notes for two tunes can be found online.
