Music & Dancing

Experience living Celtic culture on the Island.

Many consider Cape Breton Island the seat of ancient culture and the hub of Celtic folk music revival.

When not relaxing in our Cape Breton cottages, celebrate the island’s music and culture with an afternoon of world-class bag piping and Gaelic singing at an award-winning festival or stop by one of the Island pubs and enjoy the invigorating sounds of local fiddlers. Looking for traditional dancing? Choose from a variety of community ceilidhs and get your dancing shoes ready.
