Cape Breton Island ~ The Celtic Heart of North America

The
Celtic Heart of North America represents the amazing Celtic and Gaelic
cultural experience on Cape Breton Island, Nova Scotia, Canada. We
celebrate and share the only living Celtic culture in North America.
Whether it’s dancing to lively fiddle tunes, learning a Gaelic milling
song or tracing your roots, we’d love to share our Celtic culture with
you. And you just might find it has the key to unlock your Celtic heart.

The Celtic Experience

During
the first half of the 19th century, approximately 50,000 Highland Scots
immigrated to Cape Breton Island. They brought their Gaelic language
and rich culture. Living on an island, their culture survived and
flourished. Today, we invite you to share in this living Celtic culture
by participating in our traditional music, dance, crafts, arts and
storytelling.
