Protest songs of Cape Breton Isle

Wendy went down to the Lyceum yesterday to catch the launch of Cape Breton Island Protest Songs. 

The musical project is a collaboration between The Centre for Cape Breton Studies at Cape Breton University and local musicians who've taken compositions that were published in the 1920s and recorded them anew.

You'll hear Victor Tomiczek perform Picket Line and co-producer Richard MacKinnon.
