Buttrey Presentation at Fort York July 21

Tracy Macdonnell will be giving his presentation on the Buttrey Manuscript at Fort York, in Toronto, on Sunday July 21st at 1:45 pm.

Tracy Macdonnell - Buttrey PresentationBack in the 1980’s, while working at Fort York, Tracy learned the fife from images of the Buttrey manuscript and painstakingly created a list of all 1,061 tunes. This was a major step in allowing the manuscript to be accessible to others. He undoubtedly knows more Buttrey tunes than anyone anywhere and truly enjoys playing them.

His presentation will help you understand more about military and social music of that period and more about the Buttrey Manuscript.

Tracy, thank you for doing this.
