Acadian dance troupe La Swing du Suête part of maritime Christmas Tour

During August 2019, The Barra MacNeils performed another of what has become an annual tradition for the group; in the form of a summer theatre concert in the Cape Breton, Nova Scotia, Acadian village of Cheticamp.  Among the local performers featured as guests in that concert were the dancers from La Swing du Suete.   It was from that experience that the idea of featuring the dancers as guests on all the December 2019 maritime concerts on the Barra MacNeils’ annual Christmas Tour came to light. La troupe de danse La Swing du suête, de Chéticamp au Cap-Breton, se joint au groupe The Barra MacNeils pour leurs spectacles dans les provinces maritimes lors de leur tournée de Noël Maritime 20th Anniversary Christmas Tour.
