In 1939, "Smeorach nan Cnoc 'S Nan Gleann" was published in Glasgow Scotland, containing the works of eleven Gaelic Bards from Saint Joseph's Parish South West Margaree Cape Breton Island. Join Gaelic cultural enthusiasts and singers Geoffrey May and Rebecca-Lynne MacDonald-May for a stroll along the Sou'west Margaree, a member of the Canadian Heritage Rivers System, while sharing some of the songs from "Smeorach". The works of Malcolm Gillis were central to the publication, and the MacDonald-Mays will share many of those songs with you on the walk, along with history and stories of the Gaelic settlers of the area. (We will walk along a lightly used gravel road, with a level grade) At the end of the walk Geoffrey will pass his hat. Please gather at Scotsville School of Crafts at 9:45 am. Following the walk there is a Hot and Hearty Lunch at 12:00pm, followed by an afternoon of Square Dance Lessons, beginning at 1:00pm.
