The Makings of a Musical Dynasty
Celtic Tide takes a four-generation tradition of Island music into the future, and on the road

by Nancy Malcolm Sharratt

China may have had its Ming Dynasty, but the East Coast has its Fiddle Dynasties. Names such as MacMaster in Cape Breton, or Chaisson in Prince Edward Island, have become synonymous with traditional music.

So far, the Chaissons have had a comparatively low profile outside of the

The Tarot Tells It All

by Nancy Malcolm Sharratt

Living by the Sea
Profile: 
Nancy Perkins

by Nancy Malcolm Sharratt

Nancy Perkins' paintings make people smile. They show women in old fashioned bathing costumes frolicking in the surf, mermaids catching rides from flying fish, or elegant tea parties surrounded by flowers and sea.

"There's always the sea," says Nancy. "It's the colour that sends me into orbit-the bluest greens and the rust and sand. They're such happy
