Alan Lomax said this film "takes us past the solemn facade of clambakes and town meetings into a lively world of all night dances and local musicians who could have helped Daniel Webster play down the devil".

The film includes performances of seven of the finest traditional musicians in the Northeast including Joe Cormier, Jerry Robichaud, Ben Guillemette, Paddy Cronin, Wilfred Guillette, Harold Luce, and Ron West playing in their lively and distinct Acadian, Irish, Cape Breton, and Quebecois styles.
