CBMIC BoD Chair Nigel Kearns and board member Joe Sampson visited the Town of Port Hawkesbury to check out the Tunes on the Trails concert series held on the towns' local trail system. Also in attendance were CBMIC BoD members from the Strait area, Eirinn Fraser & John Ellingbo.

The crew were fortunate to catch performances by Isabella Samson, Tyler & Abbey Mullendore, and for the finale, Ashley MacIsaac and friends. There were over 100 people from the area in attendance who walked the trails for 3 separate mini concerts in the forest. It was an awesome experience and one to hopefully be repeated next year with additional locations such as the Baille Ard Trail in Sydney.

“Tunes on the Trials is such a cool idea that combines nature, active living and music - we are pretty proud here in Port Hawkesbury to see this idea implemented and be so well attended and received by both nature and music lovers alike. Cape Breton is such an innovative island when it comes to one-of-a-kind musical experiences that continue to draw visitors over the causeway and that keep people rooted in our communities they are proud to call home.” - Brenda Chisholm-Beaton - Mayor, Port Hawkesbury

A big shout out and thank you to the coordinator of the Tunes on the Trails program, Michelle Farrow - Director of Recreation, Marketing, Tourism & Culture for the Town of Port Hawkesbury. We can't wait to do it again!
