40th Anniversary - Festival of Cape Breton Fiddling 2013
Thursday, August 15, 2013 - Sunday, August 18, 2013
This is an All Day Event
Join the Cape Breton Fiddlers' Association in celebrating its 40th anniversary.
Since its inception in 1973, the Cape Breton Fiddlers' Association has provided workshops and opportunities for its members to learn new tunes and techniques, it has published tunes written by its members, and it has provided venues for musicians to perform for thousands of people. It has nurtured and supported its members to excel; as a result, many of our wonderful members are now performing worldwide. Our membership has increased to include both local, national, and international members. We have been included in several publications, and we have some wonderful recordings to our credit. Cape Breton fiddle music is alive and flourishing 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.
