It’s a beautiful drive to the Acadian community of D’Escousse, on Cape Breton’s south coast. Connected by bridge to the rugged coast of Richmond County, D’Escousse is one of the main settlements on Isle Madame where Acadian traditions run deep. Expect some renowned Acadian hospitality, songs, and tunes tonight as Chéticamp trio Nicole Deveau, Chester Delaney, and Claude Bourgeois welcome visitors from Ireland, by way of North Carolina, Wales, and right here at home. With cello, violin, viola, and powerful harmonies, Vrï sheds a vibrant, new light on the centuries-old folk traditions of Wales. Past Artists in Residence John Doyle and Buddy MacDonald will round things out with a few songs. The drive to D’Escousse can be a bit twisty and turny, but the scenery more than makes up for the time spent getting there. In fact, it’s worth it to head to the concert early and take some time to explore the rocky, rugged coast of Isle Madame.
