6 Margaree Rd

Overview

Enjoy traditional Cape Breton music!

A ceilidh is a kitchen party where everyone is welcome to perform if they wish. From the very beginning, teachers and students from the nearby Gaelic College dropped by to play the fiddle or the bagpipes, to dance or to tell stories. Visitors from as far away as Australia have come back night after night to enjoy the music and to perform. Tourists who never thought they could, have found themselves mastering the art of the square dance or sharing a particular talent with the audience.

The name “The Baddeck Gathering” Ceilidh came from a popular fiddle tune of the same name that was recorded by many Cape Breton musicians including Winston Fitzgerald, Howie MacDonald, Johnnie Wilmot and the late Charlie MacCuspic to whose memory the Baddeck Gathering Ceilidh is dedicated.
