OCTOBER 8-12, 2018

We welcome you to the Celtic Music Interpretive Centre, located in Judique, Cape Breton, Nova Scotia, home of famous fiddler, Buddy MacMaster.

Each October we welcome students from all over the world to the Buddy MacMaster Fiddle Camp, a week-long camp offered at the Celtic Music Centre during the week of the Celtic Colours International Festival. The camp allows students the chance to study with some of Cape Breton's finest fiddlers, each instructor having their own unique style of Cape Breton fiddle playing.

Classes are aimed at intermediate and advanced players.

Students will have a chance to hear many great fiddlers during the week who are on location at the Celtic Music Centre and throughout the island during the Celtic Colours Festival. Optional Dance Ceilidhs and special events, also open to the public, conclude each day of classes.

A week of learning and playing at The Celtic Music Centre in Buddy's home village.

"The Buddy MacMaster Fiddle Camp is unique to Cape Breton Island in that it features the styles of ten different teachers, both from the younger and older generation of fiddlers. The atmosphere is one of natural Cape Breton hospitality, in a focused environment that allows you to absorb the music and the meaning. I highly recommend this camp for those wanting to learn the Cape Breton fiddling style."
~ Natalie MacMaster
