A new song and/or video every day for a year.

The Rankin Family

The Rankin Family are from Cape Breton Island and have won numerous music awards from CCMAs to Junos and more.  Here are several of my favorite songs.

The notes the girls hit when they sing Rise Again make the hairs stand up on the back of my neck.

Jimmy wrote the song and joins in the singing of Fare Thee Well Love.

I dare you to sit through this song without tapping your toes – The Mull River Shuffle.

Lastly I have one of their Gaelic songs Ho Rò Mo Nighean Donn Bhòidheach which they sang at the Juno Awards in 1994.
