Album Notes
The second CD in the Fàilte series produced by the Celtic Music Interpretive Centre is a selection of captivating airs and waltzes. Each tune in the compilation features a different musician and you’ll hear a variety of enjoyable Cape Breton styles. Remarkable newer compositions keep company with memorable older tunes from our Scottish heritage and confirm the strength of an ongoing Cape Breton music tradition.

To learn more about the music, its history on Cape Breton Island, and about the present wealth of products and venues, we welcome you to the Celtic Music Interpretive Centre in Judique, on Route 19, Inverness County on the Ceilidh Trail. If you plan to travel the island, the Centre is a good starting point to discover features of the music, popular venues, and music that’s ‘close to the floor.’ Whether this is part of your heritage or something brand new to you, this is the place to explore, experience, and expand your knowledge of traditional music.

Enter the interactive Tom Rankin Exhibit Room where you can pick up a fiddle, press a button and have a video lesson with instructor Kinnon Beaton, or watch another exhibit and get step dancing tips from Mary Janet MacDonald.

Instructors share their expertise at the Buddy MacMaster School of Fiddling taking place in 2007 on JULY 16-20, JULY 30-AUGUST 3, and in OCTOBER during Celtic Colours. Visit our website for registration information and to find workshops at other times of the year.

In the Ceilidh Kitchen we gather for food, fun, and festivities. We even make room for a square set or two when fiddlers get the dancers on the move. Our pubs, ceilidhs, and special events feature music and song in an intimate, relaxed setting.

In the past, Special Interpretive Performances have highlighted the Festival of Cape Breton Fiddling, composers from the 1940s, and musicians performing at the Montreal Olympics. You can hear concerts, old-time dances, browse through pictures, read, and find sheet music in our Archives, Special Collections, and Resource Library.

In the Gift Shop, find something to carry home with you to remember your visit. And let this music transport you to the hills and shores of Cape Breton wherever you are, whenever you listen.
