The Gàidhlig song of the day is by one of my favorite Cape Breton groups – The Rankin Family. The Rankin Family group was comprised of 3 brothers and 2 sisters from Mabou, Cape Breton, Nova Scotia. Unfortunately, two members of the group, John Morris Rankin and Raylene Rankin, are no longer with us, but the pure harmonies in the recordings they left behind are magical. I was privileged to see the Rankin Family perform live many times and it was through hearing them talk about the beauty of their home in Cape Breton that I began visiting there myself. I can honestly say that I don’t think I have been any more beautiful than Mabou, Cape Breton.
