Traditional music, language, and dance have played a central role in the Boisdale area since Scottish immigrants arrived in the early 1800s, and they are always ready to roll out the welcome mat. The community still gets together regularly to celebrate their culture, and dances and concerts are held year-round at the Boisdale Fire Hall. Tonight will be a special night as the concert takes place on the Cameron Stage, named to commemorate the impact of recently deceased Fr. Francis Cameron and his sister Janet back in 2017. For renowned bagpiper John MacLean, whose parents were friends with the Camerons, it will be an extra special evening and a time for reflection. John will take to the stage with son Cailean on guitar and Kolten MacDonell on piano for some rousing traditional pipe tunes. They’ll ensure new Welsh friends Vrï get the full Boisdale welcome as they harness the raw energy of the fiddle with the finesse of the violin, and the beauty of chamber music with the joy and abandon of a pub session. Fiddle, guitar, piano trio Kimberley Fraser, Aaron Lewis, and Mac Morin will do their part to raise the roof with some well-loved traditional Cape Breton tunes to top the night off.
