As we know, language is a storehouse of cultural values and hold the keys to a culture’s values and character. For a century it seemed that Gaelic was waning in Nova Scotia, but since I filmed this documentary in 2003-4 much has been done to strengthen and revive it. In this excerpt, the late Peter MacLean and Jeff MacDonald explain the vital place of Gaelic language and song in their lives. Many thanks to them both for their generosity in sharing these thoughts and personal reflections with me. Note: Today is the 8th anniversary of Peter MacLean’s death.
