Canada’s Musical Coast to Celebrate Sounds of the Season

Cape Breton, N.S. – In partnership with Destination Cape Breton Association and Celtic Heart of North America, Canada’s Musical Coast will be presenting a series of videos featuring local artists during the holiday season.

This video series, called Sounds of the Season, will showcase Cape Breton – Unama’ki musicians playing their favourite Christmas songs in their style. It was inspired by the success of Canada’s Musical Coast’s Music Mondays video series from Summer 2020, where local artists shared their talent in iconic locations and hidden gems all around Inverness County.

“We know many people won’t be able to come home for the holidays this year,” said Donna MacDonald, Director of Tourism and Recreation for the Municipality of the County of Inverness. “With the help of local artists, we hope to bring a little bit of home to those folks instead.”

The songs featured in Sounds of the Season will bring a new, uniquely Cape Breton – Unama’ki twist to old classics – and may even feature an original song or two. Beginning December 12th, a video will be posted daily to the following Facebook pages: Canada’s Musical Coast, Visit Cape Breton and Celtic Heart of North America.
