Promoted as Canada’s Musical Coast, Inverness County has been lovingly described as “…a string of beautiful communities and majestic coastline vistas bound together by musical traditions. The music culture here is written into the story, written into the very fabric of the coastline. During harsh winters and trying times, music and dance were neither indulgence nor luxury, but rather survival. Music culture here is honest, authentic, and shared directly from the heart—this is a coast shaped by music.” Gathering tonight on the musical coast are a virtuoso trio from Ireland, a duo of acclaimed songwriters from Alberta, and a young, award-winning singer-songwriter from Louisdale. They’ll set the scene to music that matches the breathtaking views. Belle Côte is located on the northwest coast of Inverness County. The drive to Belle Côté, north through the scenic Margaree Valley or south from the Chéticamp area in the Cape Breton Highlands, is well worth taking your time for.
This concert is a short drive from the Acadian Culinary Experience supper.
