Saturday October 19thForty Years Strong: A Celebration of Strings & Song – Joan Harriss Cruise Pavilion
In 1998, the Association celebrated its 25th anniversary with two hundred and two fiddlers on stage at the Gaelic College. Ten years later, nearly one hundred members embarked on a ten-day tour of Scotland.
By providing workshops and opportunities to learn new tunes and techniques, publishing tunes, and providing venues for musicians, the Cape Breton Fiddlers' Association is flourishing.
Cape Breton fiddle music is alive and well both on the Island and throughout the world and the Cape Breton Fiddlers' Association is proud to have played a significant role in this resurgence.
Celebrating its 40th anniversary this year, the Cape Breton Fiddlers’ Association will be featured in a very special closing concert.
