World’s Largest Fiddle

World’s Largest Fiddle

Cape Breton Island is home to the world’s largest fiddle!
Located at the Port of Sydney, the iconic fiddle and bow reach 60 feet
in height. Also home of North America’s only living Celtic culture,
residents felt the fiddle was a strong symbol to represent the island.  Officially named  FIDHEAL
MHOR A’ CEILIDH, or the Big Fiddle of the Ceilidh, the giant fiddle
plays a dedicated medley composed by local musician Kinnon Beaton and
delights all who hear it with a march, a stratespey and a reel.
