This group was the first of this year’s Performing Arts series at the U. What a spectacularly great time. Being good Minnesotans we danced spectacularly well in our chairs! The music was wonderful even if we did not understand a word of it.
Check out the group’s web page here. They are from Nova Scotia, Canada and their name refers to the expulsion of the Acadians from the Canadian maritime provinces in 1775. The music they played was reminiscent of a lot of other Celtic traditions and their step dancing left us breathless!
