Top of page

Celtic Spirits: A grand and challenging landscape framed by majestic northern seas... a sky laden with portent... and wild and beautiful music in the air. Cape Bretoners John Allan Cameron and Winston "Scotty" Fitzgerald journey to Ireland, Scotland, Wales and Breton seeking out the music and history of their ancestors. There, as at home, the extraordinary music is born in the homes of ordinary people. For all the wonders they find in their travels, John Allan and Scotty discover that wherever Celts gather, there's a fine racket in the kitchen. A 1978 film. (28 min. 47 sec.) Also featured: Songs of Nova Scotia: A charming and evocative portrait of the late Dr. Helen Creighton, whose life work collecting Nova Scotian folk songs has earned her a treasured place in our history. Beautifully shot in black and white, this 1958 film is a window on a kinder and simpler time. (11 min.).
