Join us on Saturday, August 26th at Alderney Landing for a one-night only Cape Breton ceilidh with HEIST’s New Waterford Boy! New Waterford Boy is an intimate upbeat kitchen party where Richie Wilcox tells personal tales of being Rita MacNeil’s nephew for a week, conquering first kisses at junior high dances, the inner workings of Canadian Idol (he was in the top 11 of Season One), and more as he also belts Cape Breton classic tunes from Allister MacGillivray, the Rankin Family, Rita MacNeil and John Allan Cameron. Backed with a band made up of top-notch talented friends, the two-act show pays tribute to traditional Cape Breton culture while making way for the people of Cape Breton today, here and now.
