“We’re always busy performing during the holidays, so we do have some great holiday tunes in our repertoire. Those songs and stories are important to capture. Now we have them to share forever,” said Men of the Deeps conductor Stephen Muise in a City release. “Those stories told by the men always hit home because they’re not borrowed tall tales, but true stories that these miners have lived.”
According to their website, The Men of the Deeps is a choir of working and retired coal miners from the island of Cape Breton in Nova Scotia. Founded in 1966 as part of Cape Breton’s contribution to Canada’s Centennial Year (1967), the group was conceived by the people of Cape Breton to preserve in song some of the rich folklore of that island’s coal mining communities.
Tickets for this Grand Theatre performance are available by calling 613-530-2050 or online at the Grand’s website.
