Join Gaelic culture enthusiasts Geoffrey and Rebecca-Lynne MacDonald-May for a leisurely stroll along the South West Margaree, a Canadian Heritage River. This area, called Am BrĂ ighe by settlers, was once home to many bards, chief among them was the amazingly talented Malcolm Gillis whose songs are still sung Island wide and beyond. Join us for this walk along a level gravel road by the rivers edge, surrounded by maple sloped mountains. Your hosts will sing some of Malcolm's songs and discuss aspects of Gaelic culture and history (questions welcome). Approximately 2 hrs. Geoffrey will pass his hat after the walk. Please gather at Scotsville School of Crafts at 10 am.
