mactheturk CAPE BRETON, let's talk (20) CAPE BRETON, let's talk 27 May 00

As I get older, I'm impressed with how little I know.For all these years I've been missing the music of Cape Breton. Just recently a friend brought this to my attention. We had attended a John Hartford concert, I enjoy his dancing, shuffle whatever, as much as the music, and my friend said "If you love fiddle players that dance then you have got to check out this out". Next thing I know my friend is introducing me to the likes of Natalie MacMaster, Ashley MacIsaac the Rankin Family etc.

I told my friend of a trip I'm planning for this fall to visit Scotland and he's trying to convince me to change my plans and head for Cape Breton. "That's where you'll find the real Scottish culture" he claims.

I think I've caught the bug and you might find me step- dancin' my way to "New Scotland".

Any thoughts on this topic would be appreciated.

fit as a fiddle,
