L’Ardoise (pronounced “Lordways” locally) is a small fishing village that lies along the rugged and beautiful south- western Acadian coast of Cape Breton. It was settled by Acadians centuries ago who called their new home L’Ardoise, which means “slate”, for the large deposits of rock and slate they found along the shore. It’s a long drive to get there, but beautiful with an ocean view around every turn. So take your time and enjoy the drive before settling in to a full slate of performances by artists from the Orkney Islands, Newfoundland and Labrador, Scotland, the U.S. and Cape Breton. Tonight’s concert features three past Artists in Residence; singing and dancing; and tunes on fiddle, accordion, and guitar—a little something for everyone, really. Make a day of it and stop in the nearby Mi’maq community of Potlotek on the way for a traditional meal and short plays presented by area students, Mi’kmaq Legends Dinner
