Two new books have just been launched about Cape Breton, Nova Scotia, written by two Irish/Irish based scholars, Liz Doherty and Mats Melin.

The Cape Breton Fiddle Companion by Liz Doherty is an A-Z compendium of all things Cape Breton fiddle related. One With the Music by Mats Melin is about the Cape Breton step dance tradition.

Both books are published by Cape Breton University Press and were launched there during the Celtic Colours International Festival.
