Rodney Chiasson - obit JACK & MacLEAN

a double shot of sad news from the world of traditional music on Cape Breton Island. Both Joe Peter and Peter Jack MacLean passed away today. They were both raised in the Christmas Island / Boisdale area. They were both wonderfully self-assured men. Both very rural and both with a never ceasing interest in gaelic song and gaelic fiddle music. To talk about their legacy and what a loss it is to the gale talk of Cape Breton we've reached Rodney Chiasson. He runs the Highland Village in Iona.
