For some strange reason when I was really young, my 2 cousins and I staged a protest in our grandparents living room chanting, “Rita MacNeil, Rita MacNeil”. To this day I have no clue why, I guess we really wanted to hear her music and maybe dance a little jig.
I’ll never forget going to her famous tea house in Nova Scotia when I was 13 years old with my Mom.
Rita died yesterday at the ripe age of 68. She was a Canadian gem and all time legend. She’ll be missed in the hearts across the nation.
