Dancing, close to the floor, was commonly done in the kitchen where the sound was the best. And if there was no one around to play fiddle or pipes, puirt a beul, or mouth music, was usually readily available. We'll have some great examples of that tonight with Mary Ann Kennedy and Artist in Residence Nic Gareiss. This show will also feature Artist in Residence Mac Morin who will perform with Nic and also Dannsa, a six-piece Scottish group dedicated to dance. Mac will join piper Fin Moore and fiddler Sarah Hoy on piano, and dancers Caroline Reagh, Sandra Robertson, and Frank McConnell on his feet. With local steppers Harvey MacKinnon, the Warner Sisters, and Joe Rankin, and dancer and fiddler Mairi Rankin, step dancing comes full circle as Scotland and Cape Breton unite.
