Summary
"A penetrating look at the life and work of a twentieth-century Gaelic singer-storyteller from Nova Scotia, Brigh an Orain - A Story in Every Song situates the inherited art of a fourth-generation Canadian Gael in its biographical, social, and historical contexts. It includes the words, music, and English translations for the songs plus an autobiography told in Lauchie MacLellan's usual entertaining style."--Jacket
