hey guys – we were talking to someone at the dog park yesterday and his son in law has a relative in the group but he couldn’t remember who it was. He said he met you in Parry Sound when you were in Southern Ontario 3 years ago. And speaking of touring we are very much in need of a Men tour around here. It’s been way too long. Hope you are all well. Special hello to Bob Roper from Adrian.

I was blessed to see you in Sydney Mines on September 28, 2014 which happen to be our first wedding anniversary.We may have been the youngest couple in the crowd but I have never enjoyed a concert more than I enjoyed yours. I sang along with many of your songs and even caught a couple of the men noticing that I knew every word. You gentlemen are true stars. I am so glad I had the chance to see you preform in person. Thank you for not only your music and your stories but for the work you have done.

The last time I saw you was at the concert with Rita MacNeil in Orillia Ontario. After Rita died I played the records/tapes and cd’s to try and abate the sadness. Hearing you again on a replay of the Savoy Theatre performance before she passed away brought back floods of tears and a real yearning for your beautiful harmonies and music. God Bless you all and please have a safe and Happy Christmas and New Year. You are all a credit and inspiration to all of Canada.

Guestbook Entry:

Saturday September 6, 2014 a man came into the gift shop at the Northumberland Ferries terminal at Caribou Wharf. We struck up a conversation about music and I asked him if he had the opportunity to sing with Rita MacNeil. He drew me into his emotional grief as he talked about the day he heard of Rita’s passing. I did not know Rita nor did I ever meet her but the genuine tone and admiration in this man’s voice had me feeling overwhelmed that I was starting to get choked up myself. Because of his words, he had me missing Mrs. MacNeil all over again, as if we were close friends. To this man in the gift shop, thank you for the conversation.

Bruce, wanted to thank you again for getting that picture signed by everyone. I am looking for a frame and will proudly hang it in my home. When you get a chance I’d like you to thank every one of them and let them know how glad I am to have it. Also let them know that for many years I have attended the concert every year when I am home, and will continue to do the same. It is one of the highlights of our Cape Breton visits. The “Working Man’s Song” still brings tears to my mind every time I hear it. Also, the ” No. 26 Mine Disaster” hits home too, because I was on that wall face that day, and consider myself lucky to be alive. See you the next time we’re home. Dave

Your choir is amazing, one of the best experiences I have ever had. All the men seem so warm hearted and genuine. I saw the group at the Britania Mining museum just outside of Vancouver. I feel very priviledged to have experienced their touching performance in a very appropriate locaiton. I do hope they come back to Vancouver one day and I hope that the tradition will continue on as it is very unique and special. I was very touched and priviledged to see and talk to the group. Thank you. I would say they are under celebrated. You cannot help but be touched when you listen to the words and hear their stories and hear them sing. Amazing! Unforgetable!

Hi, I first saw your group singing Working Man with Rita Mac Neil about 10 years ago and I was so moved by the beaty of the words the majesty of the sound and the solidarity of the picture I saw. I had shivers go down my whole body, and I am only moved this way by the most beautiful sounds. Recently I have started Googling and all I could remember was the name Rita, and it took me some time to find you all. I have just listened to your promo of the working man, and was moved as before, even without Rita, but I would dearly love to know the name of the album with Rita and the choir. It is not natural for human beings to spend so much time underground, so your time down there is one of great effort and sacrifice, on your part. Your effort is acknowledged by the rest of us, and your song says it all. It is a work of great majesty and beauty. Yolanta

I attented your concert with Rita McNeil in Penticton BC, I loved it, I am hoping you will come back to Penticton again so I can see you live. Your choir is an inspiration to me and to remind me that my aliments do not compare to what miners have to endure. Thank you for sharing your memories, songs, and experiences with Canada and the World. You guys rock.

I have always found your choir to be truly inspirational and have always loved listening to you sing. My husband and I had just arrived in Louisbourg ( around 9 oclock) and saw that you were performing at The Playhouse so decided to take a little walk around the playhouse and maybe we could catch a glimpse or hear a song as it was a very warm night and the doors were open…… suddenly a gentleman walks by and hands us 2 tickets to your show and says -” go on in and enjoy – they’re just starting the second half of their show ” I was spechless ! We did indeed go in and did indeed enjoy your performance very much ! What a very special treat!!! When you started to sing ” Its A Workin’ Man I Am” I started to cry – what a beautiful touching song – my favorite …. so thank you so much to the kind gentleman who gave us the tickets and to you for making that day such a memorable one !! P.S. Even got to chat with one of you after the show ….
