A Nova Scotia flag was waved above the audience as fiddler Ashley MacIsaac, a Nova Scotian, entertained in a free Saturday night Canada Winter Games concert off Celebration Plaza in Red Deer.

The show, which also featured popular Celtic rocker Alan Doyle, of Newfoundland, was a rollicking good time for the full-house crowd of 2,000 people who gather in a heated tent for the 52 Degrees North Music and Cultural Festival.
