Dr. Eveline (Dunbar) MacLeod

We said farewell to a true stalwart of Scottish traditional culture this week, Dr. Eveline (Dunbar) MacLeod. Among her many achievements, she helped found the very first girls' pipe band in Nova Scotia back in the late 1940s, taught highland dancing, was a school teacher, and was a champion at The Gaelic College in St. Ann's Cape Breton for more than 60 years as the resident weaver. On behalf of the ACPBA we offer most sincere condolences to Eveline's family.

Listen to an interview Eveline did with the Gaelic College, just a few years ago.
