Suas E! Episode #2 featuring Howie MacDonald

We’re back with Episode #2 of our new video podcast Suas E! Celebrating Cape Breton Island’s living Celtic culture.

This week celebrated fiddler, pianist and comedian Howie MacDonald will entertain us all with a couple of fiddle tunes, featuring piano accompaniment by his long-lost identical twin! He’ll chat with Dawn about his busy 2014, and reminisce about growing up in the Cape Breton trad scene, the role KFC played in ceilidh preparation, and his brief career as a rock and roller. We’ll conclude the episode with a stirring performance by the Barra MacNeils recorded during the 2013 Festival.

Many thanks are due to our project partners at Cape Breton University’s Centre for Cape Breton Studies and Nova Scotia’s Department of Communities Culture and Heritage.
