The soulful sound of
the harp and uillean pipes, one of the best fiddlers in Cape Breton and the wonderful
Men of the Deeps made this concert an experience to remember.
David Power and Triona Marshall hail from Ireland and are known throughout the celtic world for the harp and uillean pipes. Sweeter sounds have never been heard. The beautiful surroundings of St. Joseph Parish were their perfect setting.
Dwayne Côté is one of the best fiddlers in Cape Breton. He has played throughout Canada, the US and, indeed, the world. He played with singer-songwriter and guitarist, Roger Stone.
The synergy between Dwayne and Roger is inspiring and wonderful to watch. It is easy to see how they enjoy playing together.

They sang a vast
array of tunes for us. All with soul and
feeling. These guys are such a joy to
watch. They clearly love to sing and to
share their knowledge and love of coal mining songs. They are a Cape Breton institution and were
awarded with several standing ovations during their show.
If you get the opportunity to see these guys ....take it!
