Thread Name: Lyr Add: My Cape Breton Shore (John Allan Cameron)
Subject: RE: Lyr Add: My Cape Breton Shore (Cameron)
Thank you Guest for posting a description of John Allan Cameron. I learned when I was in school that he wore a kilt to the Grand Ole Opry as you mentioned. He was a fantastic musician. He had a great singing voice, could he ever pick out fiddle tunes on the twelve string and his arrangements were well done. His back up musicians were the finest in my opinion. Banks of Sicily is one of my favourites. I've read testimonials from people who knew him that he was a very kind man who loved Cape Breton his home. He's an alumnus of Saint Francis Xavier University in Antigonish, Nova Scotia.
