Featured Performer: Jeff MacDonald (Historical research, Vocals, and Seachaidh)

Jeff will be performing in the show 'Strathspey Connections' on July 27, August 3, 10 & 17th!

The story of the Gaels in Nova Scotia goes back thousands of years and, due to generations of cultural repression, is unknown to many of the Gaels themselves and especially to the general population. It's a story of highly-civilized society with traditions of scholarship, law, and medicine, that carried their greatest treasures within their language and their culture, a culture that once dominated most of Scotland.

As a people the Gaels have encountered linguistic and cultural persecution and repression for hundreds of years, and yet their language and culture still endure in the 21st century. Cape Breton Island is today the only region in the world outside of Scotland and Ireland where the Gaelic language is still naturally spoken within families and communities and where its attendant culture of music, song, dance, and storytelling is still shared within those communities.

This show gives the background to this people, language, and culture and exhibits the evolution of the music, singing, and dance heritage over the last few hundred years and into the present day.

Tickets are available online at www.strathspeyplaces.com or by calling 902-945-5300
