Celtic Music Interpretive Centre

Website: http://www.celticmusiccentre.com/

The Celtic Music Interpretive Centre offers the perfect introduction to traditional Cape Breton music. Listen to our professional musicians explain our culture and play such tune types as marches, strathspeys, jigs and reels and watch them step-dance to the music! Tour the interactive exhibit room, which has interactive fiddle and stepdancing lessons.

Stay for lunch and enjoy our lunchtime ceilidhs! There is no admission to the ceilidhs and the kitchen is serving up Cape Breton favorites as well!

Drop in to discover Cape Breton celtic music, songs and culture during the Sunday Afternoon Ceilidhs or Wednesday Evening Ceilidhs featuring some of the island’s finest musicians. 

If you are looking for live music, The Celtic Music Centre offers live music seven days a week throughout the peak season!

The Centre also houses an extensive collection of music recordings, photographs, videos and correspondence. And before you leave, make sure you pick up some CD’s of toe tapping music to listen to as you drive around the island. You can also visit the online store to purchase music and books, register for The Buddy MacMaster School of Fiddling, fiddle workshops, and purchase concert tickets.
