Musical Buddies- Buddy MacDonald, Meaghan Blanchard & Spyder Macdonald$20
Buddy MacDonald, one of Cape Breton’s most famous “buddies”, leads this exciting cast of artists for a three night-series. Buddy has toured the world, from the Shetland Islands, to Dollywood, sharing his uplifting spirit and songs. You will probably know standards like “Getting Dark Again”.
Meaghan Blanchard is the “other” spunky redhead from Prince Edward Island, quickly developing a successful touring career on and off the Island. Meaghan is a gifted guitarist, with a crystal pure voice and wonderful character driven songs. Her two ECMA’s are just a start.
Rounding out the cast for the week is John Spyder Macdonald. Spyder is Pictou’s musical ambassador and his songs tell many tales of the community’s storied past. Ghost ships, rum runners, the landing of the Hector and many colourful “characters” are prominent in his songs.
