Stay tuned for Glenn's forthcoming academic article in the Journal of Canadian Studies (University of Toronto Press), titled "Marginalization, Resilience, Integration: Reconstructing and Globalizing Canada's 'Celtic Fringe' Island Region of Cape Breton."
Cape Breton is a region that is seeking ways to rebuild itself in response to outmigration, industrial decline, and other pressures and opportunities presented by globalization. One way of pursuing development is through harnessing the Island's endogenous assets, one of which includes its rich traditional music that is rooted in Gaelic culture. The Red Shoe Pub is a venue that exemplifies these dynamics. Below is a clip of Glenn performing there with Kenneth MacKenzie, Allan Dewar (piano) and Patrick Gillis (guitar).
