It is said that you can see Prince Edward Island from Chéticamp. The strong connection between Cape Breton and P.E.I. music makes one wonder if you can hear across the Northumberland Strait as well. J.J. Chaisson and Darla MacPhee come from P.E.I.’s famously musical Chaisson family. Cape Breton fiddler and composer Andrea Beaton spent some formative years playing with the Chaissons, and Rémi Arsenault played on one of Andrea’s albums. More recently, Andrea has been performing with Québécois fiddler Véronique Plasse. J.P.’s Cape Breton roots are in the Chéticamp area—just one of many influences on his playing. Another is the bluegrass he picked up touring as a teenager in the American south. We’ll get a taste of that when J.P. and Jake Lauzon team up. And we welcome Cape Breton singer- songwriter Lisa Cameron backed by husband Vern on guitar and son Finley on mandolin. Chauffe-les!
