For forty years Cape Breton has had two wonderful groups maintaining our fiddle traditions and our love of choral singing. Preparation for the 1973 Festival of Cape Breton Fiddling in Glendale gave birth to the Cape Breton Fiddlers' Association who have been preserving and promoting Cape Breton fiddle music ever since. The Cape Breton Chorale was also formed that year and has gone on to perform throughout the Maritimes and UK and release five albums. Singer-songwriter Nathan Rogers and Barra MacNeils Kyle, Sheumas, and Lucy will join the Forrester Dancers in paying tribute to these Cape Breton cultural institutions.
