John Allen Cameron RIP

The popular Cape Breton singer has died from cancer. Mr. Cameron is often referred to as the godfather of Celtic music in Canada. A few years ago I met him briefly at a Scotch tasting dinner in Toronto. It was the eve of Rabbi Burns day. Mr. Cameron, dressed in full regalia, was sitting behind me. They piped out the haggis that night, and I lived to tell about it. Fortunately, there was plenty of good scotch around help with the digestion.
