The performers in today’s matinee at the Ephraim Scott Presbyterian Church have soaked up the traditions of Gaelic music, culture and song as passed down over generations. To say they are all steeped in tradition is to say they have each absorbed the essential elements of the tradition, much as the water absorbs the taste and flavour of tea when steeping Cape Bretoners’ favourite cup. Miller | MacDonald | Cormier bring together pipes, fiddle, guitar, Gaelic song and dancing with roots in Scottish, Irish, Cape Breton and Acadian traditions. The trio recorded their latest album, South Haven, in this very church which is hosting a Celtic Colours concert for the first time. Dave MacIsaac, Dawn Beaton, and Hilda Chiasson will offer a very traditional repertoire and style of fiddle tunes, while Buddy MacDonald and Rachel Davis will honour the tradition of those who came before them, from the Gaelic song tradition of the North Shore to the fiddle-playing of Rachel’s grandfather in the nearby Baddeck area.
