Having fun with live music - Cape Breton style
St. Peter's, Cape Breton, Nova Scotia: It's in our blood to celebrate with live music of all kinds. Although there is a definite Celtic twist to some of what you'll experience here - we love to play Old Time, Appalachian, Bluegrass, Blues, Acadian and Cajun, Folk, Country and Klezmer. We delight in hosting musical guests from around the world and invite you to come and mix your stuff up with ours.
We love to jam - and welcome visiting players to sit in on our sessions. All styles of music are welcome - we have a democratic circle-jam approach where everybody gets to lead their own tune or song in turn, with back-up from everybody else. We want to learn from you and for you to learn from us.
On this web site we'll try to bring you information about upcoming traditional live music events in our neighbourhood. Everything from open jam sessions to concerts, music and dance workshops, ceilidhs, square dances...and any kind of excuse to play live traditional music together. All traditions are fair game.
If you have traditional music events you'd like to promote here - or news and pics of your recent events to share, please Contact Us.
