Here is a link to the "A Cape Breton Thank You" Show on Facebook:
The show consists of several speakers and well known CB musicians Aaron Lewis, Kimberley Fraser, Jordan Musycsyn with Margaret MacPherson, RoSa (Jenifer and Emily Dingwall), Emma Stevens, Keith Mullins and upcoming indie pop artist Elyse Aeryn with Garrett Taylor.
The purpose of this Holiday Season show is:
To help spread joy and activate hope in each other at a time that people seem to be fatiguing from the COVID-19 pandemic. To encourage people that we will get through this difficult time and we will be ok. To take time to say thank you and show appreciation to our health care providers and teams, our educators and people who work to keep our schools clean and safe, community members and essential workers, local and provincial leaders for getting us to where we are today and to encourage everyone to keep up all the public health recommendations as we await the news of a vaccine coming to us.
The show consists of several messages from various community leaders, some pre-recorded videos and a Cape Breton Doctors band performing a few songs. There will be in person performances (pre-recorded due to Health restrictions) by some well known CB based musicians and a few new faces.
