Hear! Here! A Musical Geographic is hosted by Nova Scotia’s own multiple Juno award-winning minstrel bard, Old Man Luedecke and Lesley Robinson, an Indigenous musician who grew up in the First Nation Algonquin community of Kipawa, Quebec. Together they take the audience on a journey of discovery as they explore the rich musical community of North Preston, Nova Scotia, Canada’s oldest and largest Black community.

Yet all is not rosy. There are issues and obstacles facing the community. Such as the prejudices that surround North Preston and its people. Les Robinson explores these issues and how a marginalized community calls upon music and faith to survive and thrive every day.

The captivating dialogue and discourse of the program, peppered with musical performances take the viewer on an entertaining ride that results in a heightened cultural awareness.
