HER CLASSIC CAPE BRETON SONGS AND POEMS have joined the world song tradition—songs like "The Ghost of Bras d'Or," "Kelly's Mountain," and "The Lady of the Loom" which inspired the creation of the Cape Breton Tartan.
A proud Cape Bretoner who never lost touch with her Newfoundland roots, Lillian Crewe Walsh grew up in Neil's Harbour and lived on Scatarie Island and in Glace Bay. This collection includes 48 ballads and poems, and "A Conversation about Lillian Crewe Walsh" with her relatives.
