While working in the lumber camps, local bard Hugh F. MacKenzie lamented leaving his home. “Christmas of 1927 overtook me in Northern Ontario, eighty miles from civilization. My thoughts of home and Cape Breton I tried to voice in the following verses vowing:“Bu Deònach Leam Tilleadh” (“I would willingly return”). Some of Cape Breton’s finest musicians gather at the Christmas Island Firehall to share the stage with emerging talent and local tradition bearers in bilingual Gaelic-English concerts. A traditional tea with oatcakes and tea biscuits will be served.
