In Cape Breton, music is our culture, and culture is our music. At Cabot Shores, you’ll be surrounded by both. For instance, every Tuesday and Friday evenings at 7:30pm, you can join in a Ceilidh at St. Ann’s United Church (just minutes away) hosted by the fantastic fiddler, David Paprizian. You can also see him playing in the local group, Rocky Shores.
Cabot Shores has become a hub for music along the Cabot Trail, with notable musicians like Buddy MacDonald and Jennifer Roland and of course, Rocky Shores, taking the stage. Young and talented newcomers like Rosie Mackenzie and Johnny Muise and recent East Coast Music Award performers like the Heartwood Slacks have provided both traditional celtic and original folk acoustic music.
Now Cabot Shores is the home of the Cabot Trail Acoustic Festival, which will have concerts many Saturday nights during the season and a full blown Cabot Trail Acoustic Festival from July 26-28th. The profits of these events go to the Good Health Festival Society, whose mission is Well-being Through Adventure (especially Well-Being Through Music!).
