Mabou, Cape Breton, Nova Scotia

Folk music lovers, especially those fond of the Cape Breton style of Celtic music will immediately recognize the town name of Mabou. It is the home town of the Rankin Family.

We stopped in at the Red Shoe Pub. When I took out my harmonica, it was not long before Greg Campbell, who has a farm in Mabou and who plays piano (sometimes locally with the Rankins) joined in with me for a jam. Greg also took us to see his farm and invited us to rent a cottage there sometime.

Ruth and I enjoyed the magnificent view.
