Last night, I had the pleasure of playing a sword dance for two other Piper/Highland dancers, Cameron and Aidan MacNeil from Cape Breton (Cape Breton University Pipe Band) at the Winter Steam Ceilidh competition in Kansas City. The lads did a fantastic job of it and we ended up winning the contest! Here is our video of the "Cape Breton Connection"!
