Trestle Traditions & Piano Accompaniment
Dr. Ian Brodie & Dr. Chris MacDonald

Starting this morning and running all week, both faculty and students at Cape Breton University will be presenting some of the research they've been working on over the course of the year.

Dr. Ian Brodie presented some of his findings. He has been working on research around the railroad trestle in Sydney River.

The very trestle that has for some time been the subject of debate after years of being painted and repainted by high school students.

All this week at Cape Breton University faculty and students will be presenting some of the research they've been working on over the course of the year.....in some cases, the course of their careers!

In fact this morning it was time for several members of the folklore department to talk about their work.

Including Dr Chris MacDonald, he is interested in the piano especially when it's being played along with traditional Cape Breton fiddle music.
