Our condolences

Sheena and I send our condolences to the Beaton family today, on the passing of Elizabeth Beaton, my grandmother's sister.  Elizabeth passed away yesterday at the age of 93.   She was an amazing lady and had a crucial role in maintaining the scotish music tradition in Cape Breton along with her late husband Donald Angus Beaton

I found a few videos on youtube of her interviews and also some of her family playing fiddle with  Elizabeth playing the piano in the background.
