The Lake Sessions


Dara Smith-MacDonald

Cape Breton bustles with activity in the summer. The weather is perfect for hiking, golfing or visits to the beach. Visitors flock to its natural and cultural treasures. There's music to be found in every nook and cranny, from Meat Cove to Martinique, from Main-a-Dieu to Mabou.

The winter, though? That's a different story. Most visitors have long since returned home, the music scene slows down, and the residents brace for a long, cold, snowy season. It's beautiful in its own way, but far removed from the warmer weather; the lush, green leaves of summer; and the community halls, concert venues and pubs filled with music 'til the wee hours of the morning.
