Shane Cook & The Woodchippers, É.T.É, The Pellerin Brothers, Maureen Fraser, Christine Doucet & Sylvie Aucoin, Melanie MacDonald, Amélie Larade, Donna Marie DeWolfe, Mac Morin, Keith, Kyle, and Colin MacDonald. It is well-established that dance tradition is an important, if not defining, influence on Cape Breton’s traditional music. The rhythm and pace of the tunes is determined by the steps of the dancers. In Cape Breton step dancing, all the movement is below the waist with the arms kept as still as possible. The feet barely leave the floor, and the heel is never higher than the toe. This is known as “close to the floor” and it’s the best compliment a Cape Breton step dancer can get. Tonight’s concert brings together a mix of styles and dancers from Cape Breton’s Scottish and Acadian traditions, Antigonish County, Quebec, and Ontario, backed by some of the best players you could hope for.
