Fresh from Celtic Colours International Festival, Mats Melin and Liz Doherty are hosting a celebration of Cape Breton dance and music on their home turf—Ireland.
The Cape Breton Fiddle Companion, by Liz Doherty, and One With the Music: Cape Breton Step Dance Tradition and Transmission, by Mats Melin, were launched at Cape Breton University during the North Atlantic Fiddle Convention and Celtic Colours on October 14.
The launch will be followed by a Cape Breton square set and performance of Cape Breton step dancing with members of piping and fiddle ensemble Nuallan (Kevin Dugas, Kenneth MacKenzie and Keith MacDonald) and dance group Fileanta (Margie Beaton and Jenny MacKenzie) and guests.
Sounds like quite the party! Best wishes to Liz and Mats as they launch their books among colleagues, family and friends.
