CBC affiliate in Sydney, CJCB, aired the CBC documentary The Vanishing Cape Breton Fiddler. Produced by Ron MacInnis, it informed Cape Bretoners about a complacency that had set in about how traditional music with the Cape Breton fiddle was facing a possible extinction. By June, the Cape Breton Fiddlers’ Association had been formed, and during the summer of 1972 over two hundred fiddlers were identified on Cape Breton. A Festival of Cape Breton Scottish Fiddling was planned for July 6–8 1973.
