The Company House Story - Est. 2008

“And spreading away from the collieries and coal heaps are the peaked roofs of the miners’ houses built row on row by the coal company. Company houses. Company town.”  Fall on your Knees, Ann-Marie MacDonald

The first commercial coal mine opened in Cape Breton in 1720. By 1873, eight mines were operating on the Island. The miners were paid 80 cents to $1.50 per day and boys  (yes, boys) were paid 65 cents.  Many of the towns developed around the mines with the coal company providing the infrastructure like housing and stores to purchase groceries and supplies.

The last mine closed in the Fall of 2001. The mines may be gone but the history and stories remain. One constant reminder is the company houses that still stand all over Cape Breton Island. These houses were eventually sold to the mine workers.

The Company House is a tribute to my great grandfather, my grandfather, and my father and the strong women who supported them, and to all of the families whose history was shaped by mining on Cape Breton Island.

Company Houses down home were always filled with family, friends, good food, a bit of booze, some heated discussions, and lots of music.  Welcome to my Company House where you’re sure to find all of that on any given evening. I look forward to meeting you. Enjoy!

First Time Tuesdays are back! Next one is Feb 18, 2014
 If you are an aspiring or emerging musician and have wanted to try out  your music on The Company House stage, now is your chance. Once a month on a Tuesday, we will schedule people in advance to play 20-30  minute sets from 8pm to 10pm. All you have to do is bring your best  stuff and your friends for support. A representative from The Company House will be there to listen and who knows, you may be playing your own show before you know it.

 If you are interested or know of other people who might, please spread the word and send an email to danabeeler@gmail,com with the subject "first time tuesdays". This is primarily for solo's, duo's and trio's.
