Melting pot

A resident of England, who spends much of his time in Nova Scotia working on Seaside’s rural high-speed Internet project, writes from Tel Aviv, where he is attending a wedding:

An Irish fiddle band is providing the music for the wedding. The band members are all Israelis. I was chatting with one of them, and he asked what I did. I told him about Seaside and spending half my life in Canada.

“I’m going to Canada in the autumn,” he said. “I’m going somewhere called Cape Breton, for a festival called Celtic Colours.”

So a Londoner visiting Israel meets an Israeli playing in an Irish fiddle band, and what do they have in common? Cape Breton and the Celtic Colours International Festival, of course.
