Cape Breton’s traditional music has always been closely associated with dancing. And the dancing, like the music, has typically been passed down through generations. The highest compliment that can be paid to a Cape Breton step dancer is to say they are “close to the floor”. Tonight’s concert will celebrate this local style alongside dance from the Québécois, Ottawa Valley and Appalachian traditions. Accompanied by fiddles, pipes, and guitar, the dancers gathered here will delight and amaze with their steps and style. They just might inspire you to get up for a step or two yourself. Suas e!
