Take in Nova Scotia's Gaelic heritage in music, culture and festivals, like Cape Breton's Celtic Colours Festival.
Celtic and Gaelic Culture, Music and Festivals in Cape Breton Nova Scotia
When you visit Nova Scotia, you'll discover there’s much more on the musical menu than the fiddles and reels of our world-famous roots music. From the greatest rock and roll bands on earth playing the Halifax Commons, to indie sensations getting their start at a small town festival, to international jazz stars jamming on the waterfront, to a symphony serving up beer and Beethoven, Nova Scotia is where great music is made.
On any night of the week, any month of the year, there’s live music on tap all across the province in the setting perfectly suited to your mood.
