The Ceilidh Trail

By Irish America Staff
April / May 2005

Trip to Halifax, Nova Scotia and Cape Breton, June 18-24, 2005.

It is said there are more fiddles per square mile in Cape Breton than anywhere else in the world. Join us as we leave from Newark, NJ and travel to Halifax, Nova Scotia and then on to Cape Breton for seven days and six nights of Celtic music, dance, culture, workshops, performances and touring of this incredibly beautiful and traditional corner of the earth. Cape Breton Island has been compared to the West Coast of Clare and to the Scottish Highlands. We will travel along the Ceilidh Trail, spending time visiting the many natural, historical and cultural sites for which Cape Breton is known. By evening, we will experience the barn dances, ceilidhs and sessions which this area abounds in. ♦
