Men of the Deeps
Presented by Meridian Theatres @ Centrepointe
Cape Breton’s famous choir is back in Ottawa! Men of the Deeps have been travelling the world for over 50 years with songs and stories that warm the heart of any audience.
The group have spent the past five decades delivering emotional performances, on large and small stages; giving us a sense of what life was like as a miner in a mining town; preserving and presenting some of our rich Cape Breton folklore, culture and talent, touring throughout Canada and most of the United States, China and Kosovo. They have been to the Northwest Territories and as far south as Arizona, Alabama, Florida and the Appalachian coal mining communities of Kentucky, Virginia and Pennsylvania. They have even performed in Las Vegas, Nevada.
The Men of the Deeps offers an unique show as they wear authentic mining coveralls and hard hats making a spectacular scene when they enter a concert hall in total darkness with only the lamps on their helmets for light.
Today, the Men of the Deeps are so much more than just a singing group; they are a social institution not to be missed.
“…the most amazing concert I have ever been to!” - Sandra M., Guysborough, N.S.
“The men sing with so much passion, making every concert a heartfelt night of song and stories that is so enjoyable!” - Jean & Dennis M., Sydney
