Cape Breton Gaels Jam

Amber Buchanan, Shay MacMullin, Shipa Jain, & Tad Hargrave

Through the month of May, for the past ten years, we have talked about the state of the Gaelic in our community.

It was ten years ago that Michael Kennedy's document (Gaelic Nova Scotia: An Economic, Cultural, and Social Impact Study) was released to the public and in that time a lot has happened.

However if you had said, ten years ago, that there would be an event on the North Shore that involved exclusively people under thirty-five, we'd have thought it'd never happen.....but it did.

It's called Cape Breton Gaels Jam: Creating Space for Young Gaels Across Nova Scotia.
