Port Hawkesbury Ceilidh Season 2016 

 

 

Port Hawkesbury, NS - June 9, 2016 - Ceilidh season is upon us once again and the Port Hawkesbury Ceilidhs are set to go for another year.  The Tuesday night tradition will return for another extended season.  Sponsored by the Port Hastings Historical Society, the Ceilidhs begin on July 5, 2016 in association with KitchenFest. 

 

The series will feature 14 Tuesday sessions between July 5 and October 4. 

 

"This is the 6th season the Historical Society has sponsored the Ceilidhs, and last year was the first time we extended the season to October" says Bob MacEachern, one of the organizers.  "It was the right decision as we had great numbers throughout September and the pre-Celtic Colours show in October." 

 

Once again this year's first show is part of the KitchenFest program; the Cape Breton - wide kitchen party coordinated by the Gaelic College.  Performers at the opening include Mairi Rankin of Mabou, Cyril MacPhee and Jackie Dunn MacIsaac. 

 

"We're always excited to welcome back our regular and popular performers like Wendy MacIsaac, Sabra MacGillivray and Kinnon and Betty Beaton" adds MacEachern.  "And we continue the tradition of adding new faces like Hailee Lefort and David Rankin.  For the first time in our Ceilidh history, we have two of the Barra MacNeils on the program in Kyle and Sheumas along with a couple of their family members."
