Thread Name: Lyr Add: My Cape Breton Shore (John Allan Cameron)
Subject: RE: Lyr Add: My Cape Breton Shore
John Allan Cameron almost single handedly brought about world wide recognition of Cape Breton traditional Music. He is one of the giants of Canadian music, but seldom gets much recognition outside of Nova Scotia. I believe he once played at the Grand Ole Opry wearing a Kilt.
He came from the area of Cape Breton near Mabou where many great Musicians came from, The Rankins, Buddie and Natalie MacMaster as well as Ashley MacIsac. Next time you are in Nova Scotia Joe, head to the Red Shoe pub in mabou, great music.
