at Canada's East Coast Music Awards! 2002, 2004, 2005, 2006, 2007, 2009


WINNER - 2011 PEI Music Awards - Roots Traditional Recording of the Year


A collection of fiddle tunes performed with unbridled passion and boundless energy by Richard Wood backed by Cape Breton multi-instrumental virtuoso J.P. Cormier.  As well, the finale is an exciting live track that captures the powerhouse trio of Richard on fiddle, Gordon Belsher on guitar, and Brad Fremlin on piano.


Included in the double CD set is a Bonus Disc of the best tracks from Richard's previous five albums which plays like a concert of the decade of his career from 1994 to 2004.



WINNER - 2010 PEI Music Awards - Roots Traditional Recording of the Year 


"Great Scott! - 100% Authentic, Heartfelt Celtic" is a celebration of the life and music of the founding Director of The College of Piping and Celtic Performing Arts in Summerside.


This double CD includes a previously unreleased solo piping album along with a collection of highlights from previous recordings. It celebrates Scott the piper - reknowned for immaculate execution, Scott the composer - a creator of music melodic, tuneful, impish or stirring.  And most importantly, Scott the teacher, who inspired thousands of students.

"My friend Gordon Belsher (from Guernsey Cove, PEI) set up his board right amongst us in the music room and did a marvelous job of capturing the spontaneous essence of what transpired – he was truly a part of the ensemble." 

- Doug Riley, known as Canada’s “Dr. Music”.

The studio is very proud to have added to Doug's legacy before his untimely passing in August 2007.

It was a privilege, and he will be missed dearly by everyone who ever knew him or heard him play.

"Thanks to Gordon for your hospitality and laid back atmosphere at the studio.


Don't think many people get the opportunity to sit in a studio and look out the window at the ocean.


Your place is spectacular."
