Hosted by: Lake Ainslie Weavers & Craft Guild
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. (The walk is 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 10am.
Following the walk will be a Hot & Hearty lunch (info in the Community Meals Section).
