Event Details

The Men of the Deeps is a choir of working and retired coal miners from the island of Cape Breton in Nova Scotia, Canada. Organized in 1966 as part of Cape Breton’s contribution to Canada’s Centennial Year (1967), the group’s inception was an effort by the people of Cape Breton to preserve in song some of the rich folklore of that island’s coal mining communities.

This upcoming holiday season, North America’s only coal miners chorus are preparing to take audiences on a journey like no other, touring their much-loved Christmas album, Christmas in the Mine.

A Christmas in the Mine live performance treats you to some of your favourite holiday tunes, sung in jolly miner style, of course! Sprinkling in a story or two and some jokes for good measure, the choir aims to take show-goers underground, to share the experience of celebrating Christmas in a real Cape Breton coal mine, with real Cape Breton coal miners. Joining the world famous group, as they deliver their unique brand of holiday cheer, will be one of today’s finest proponents of Cape Breton fiddle: the incomparable Colin Grant. Colin takes centre stage to feature his traditional, yet original, hard-drivin’ tunes and energetic style.
