Cape Breton musicians adapt to Covid-19 restrictions

“We always have a Garbage Night party at our house. Which is a music jam before we take out the garbage. We’ve been having them for years. Last week, we decided to put one online. We’ll do it again this week, on Thursday, at 7:00 p.m.”
It may not sound like it, but that’s how Cape Breton musicians Jenn Sheppard and Steven Muise are coping with the loss of income and work due to the restrictions from the COVID-19 pandemic.
Sheppard and Muise, along with Cape Breton musicians Kimberley Fraser and Aaron Lewis, are four musicians who have been trying very hard to adapt to the changes and the challenges brought on by this coronavirus.
