New Brunswick fiddling legend dies

A new Brunswick folk music legend has died.

Matilda Murdock was a pioneer in New Brunswick's fiddling community, best known for her composition 'The Loggieville Two-step."

The Miramichi resident was inducted into the Order of Canada in 2010 for her contribution to east coast fiddling, is a recipient of the Order of New Brunswick, and was inducted into both the New Brunswick Country Music Hall of Fame and the North American Fiddle Hall of Fame.

The Miramichi Leader reports Murdock passed away on Saturday, days after celebrating her 99th birthday.
