Music Cape Breton's Diversity in Unity

Artist Dancing Eagles Drum Group

Dancing Eagles Drum Group, which later became Free Spirit, performed the Mi’kmaw Honour Song at the Membertou First Nation Micmac-Scottish Concert held on July 1, 1990. The drummers were Sulian Herney, his son Autwen Herney, Roy Herney, Charlie Poulette, Vaughn Doucette, and Henry Augustine (Elsipogtog, New Brunswick) of the Birch Creek Singers. The drum used in this performance has a special significance: it belonged to Edward Kabatay, an elder from the Membertou First Nation.
