Frances Wilkins, Visiting Lecturer in Ethnomusicology and Scottish Music at the University of Aberdeen, is currently undertaking a fieldwork trip to the James Bay area in (cold) Canada. Her research focuses on fiddle music of James Bay, Ontario, and its links to the musical traditions of the Orkney Islands in northern Scotland. See her blog with more information, photographs and videos related to the field research. This research has been possible thanks to a small Research Grant in the Arts and Humanities from the Royal Society of Edinburgh and a small research grant from the Foundation for Canadian Studies in the UK.
