Local music in Nova Scotia

We're looking for bars or places where we might hear Acadian, Cajun, Celtic or other local music not at a festival. Fiddles preferred! Any specifics? We'll be around the island & will be on Cape Breton, in Halifax & on the coasts as well.

You could go to the Glenora Distillery for a bite to eat and some entertainment. We went a few years ago on a rainy day and it was great!

A Traditional Cape Breton Ceilidh.
A ceilidh is a gathering. In Cape Breton this gathering is most often centered around music, story telling, food and beverage.

Each day between 1 - 3pm & 8 - 10pm local Cape Breton music is featured in the Glenora Pub.

2014 Schedule TBA

It's been a few years ago but I heard some excellent music at the Red Shoe Pub in Mabou, Nova Scotia. Natalie MacMaster popped in to play on a Sunday afternoon--it was fantastic!
