Kelly is the hero of a popular Cape Breton song who “... left us Kelly’s Mountain to perpetuate his name”. The mountain itself is a Victoria County landmark overlooking the Great Bras d’Or. It has been an inspiration for local musicians, writers and artists alike, and is considered sacred ground by Cape Breton’s Mi’kmaq people. Boularderie School lies in the shadow of Kelly’s Mountain, and tonight it is the site of a concert in the mythical Irish character’s name. Award-winning traditional singer and bouzouki player Daoirí Farrell from Ireland is new to the Festival and The Narrows, led by Leanne Aucoin, features artists you’ve come to love through the years. They’ll be joined by Donnie Campbell and Jinks O’Neill to round out the night with some Cape Breton standards. It has always been presumed that Kelly would love music, and if that is so, we’re thinking tonight’s lineup just may be Kelly’s dream come true! Nearby Meal: Songs and Supper
