Four Questions About Human Rights with Ashley MacIsaac
Armed with a fiddle, Ashley MacIsaac is a musical force to be reckoned with and the pride of Cape Breton. We were thrilled to include him in the Canadian Concert for Human Rights line-up at The Forks on September 20, which also features Buffy Sainte-Marie and Bruce Cockburn. We had the opportunity ask him a few questions about human rights.
What does being part of the opening celebrations of the Canadian Museum for Human Rights mean to you?
This event shows that Canada respects people of diversity and wants to represent the good of man conquering over the evil.
What do you think the role of music is in human rights?
Words and music are the simplest way to show one’s freedom.
How has activism and the pursuit of Human Rights shaped your music?
I’m just myself, which is what all people want. Music allows me to express my personality, and with being non-heterosexual, my personality is considered abnormal.
Who is your inspiration?
Jean Chretien, working men and woman, mothers and those who strive for a better life for themselves and others.
