The Scots in Cape Breton

More info on this soon: I’ll be teaching a new course at University of Toronto’s Celtic Studies (St. Michael’s College)

SMC377H1F : The Scots in Cape Breton An examination of the ways in which Scottish immigrants shaped the culture of Cape Breton and by extension Canada, with particular reference to language, literature, music and folklore.

I can’t wait to share my passion for these people and their culture with a small group of interested students, and I’m itching to get started on planning the course.



Gaelic airs

Recorded in Goose Cove, Cape Breton, August 2004. Part of the soundtrack to my (unfinished) documentary, Faithful to the Song, which features The Boisdale Trio and  members of the Iona Gaelic singers.
