Ceilidh (Series) (1973-1974)

Ceilidh (pronounced kay-lee) is the Celtic name for a song exchange, and the CBC used the title for a series of Celtic music from the Atlantic provinces, produced in Halifax. In the summer of 1973, John Allan Cameron starred in a series of thirteen programs by this title offered for regional exchange. When the series reappeared in summer 1974, the host who, like Cameron, wore kilts, was singer Alasdair Gillies. He introduced musical guests, as well as series regulars, the Cape Breton Fiddlers and the Ceilidh Dancers.
