Hailing from Sydney Mines, Cape Breton Island, Nova Scotia, the family group is deeply rooted in Celtic music, culture and history.

    Just buy their albums. :P I believe they might have some to listen to on their website, but as for downloads, I don't know.

    Anyone know where I can find mp3s from them? I LOVE the music, but I found it on Pandora and now I'm a little desperate for more.
