Don Messer a Canadian legend that stands the test of time
From humble beginnings Don Messer became a musical icon that entertained millions with his magical fiddling skills. “Don Messer’s Jubilee” and was a national broadcast that aired on the CBC that brought together Canadians from coast to coast before their television sets 2 nights a week.
Offering a variety of entertainers and musicians he was a pillar of the national identity and millions of young Canadians across Canada dreamed of one day performing by his side.
Known for his kind, gentle personality he did not seek to outshine the other performers he shared the stage with. Just like his humble beginnings on the east coast of Canada he preferred take a step back and allow his acts and companions to shine.
