The Celtic Music Centre is a not-for-profit society and a one-of-a-kind facility located in the tiny village of Judique, Cape Breton Island. Our mandate is to collect, preserve and promote the traditional Celtic music of Cape Breton Island through Education, Research and Performance.

Designated the "Official Celtic Music Centre of Nova Scotia" and the Official Cultural Archives for the County of Inverness, the CMIC offers an in-depth look into the history, culture and music of Cape Breton Island in an authentic and lively atmosphere.
