Wednesday October 16thFor Alex Francis - SOLD OUT – St. Mary's Parish Hall
As a young man, his favourite pastime was listening to the music at local square dances and concerts. Over the years, he became an active performer himself. He has appeared with his brother on the CJFX Radio program “Fun at Five” and in 1956 he was taped for the CJFX Radio station. He was also a member of the Cape Breton Symphony with John Allan and Winston ‘Scotty’ Fitzgerald. John Donald used the knowledge he gained from his musical background to write a column for the Gaelic cultural quarterly Am Bràighe. Although he lived in Halifax for many years, he remained involved in Cape Breton music and eventually he moved back to open a music shop in Port Hawkesbury, Cape Breton.
