Bassano Arts Council hosts Heather Rankin and her Band!
November 29, 2018 @ 7:00 pm - 9:30 pm$25
Heather Rankin was born in the picturesque village of Mabou, Cape Breton, the eleventh of Buddy and Kaye Rankin’s twelve children. The Rankin family lived in a house next to the Community Hall, so Heather and her siblings could sit on the fence and listen to the music emanating from the Pig and Whistles inside. Christmas in the Rankin family home, like their lives, was filled with music. Heather Rankin released her first solo album, A Fine Line, in 2016, after decades performing and recording as part of Cape Breton’s renowned Rankin Family or Rankin Sisters. In 2017, Imagine, her second solo release — and first solo Christmas album was released. Heather will present a concert with songs from both albums as well as some of the traditional Rankin Family favourites.
