The Cape Breton Lobster Bash Series is a collection of songs released by the Crash Test Dummies for purchase via their online store. All the songs are written about Brad Roberts' experiences within Cape Breton and all feature a Celtic sound. To date, four songs have been released in the series, with a new addition expected every year or two until there is a full collection of 10-12 songs.[1]

Background[edit]

The following is Brad Robert's description of the series:

After becoming married, I wanted to show my beloved my favorite part of Canada - Cape Breton. So, we picked a town and some lodgings and stayed for a while. We were fortunate enough to meet some locals right away, all of them musical, and all very good people. My wife and I have been very close ever since meeting them 5 years ago. We go there each summer, and each summer I record a song about the local culture and characters. These were initially made for a charity to build a park in Englishtown, Cape Breton. The money was raised at an event called the Lobster Bash, hence the Lobster Bash Song and ensuing recordings. All of the Lobster Bash tunes are very Celtic, in keeping with the area's thriving Celtic culture.[1]
