Experience the musical heritage of Cape Breton -- the Celtic capital of North America.

Convene dockside next to the world's tallest fiddle. From here, a bagpiper will pipe you into a private room for an intimate, award-winning musical performance.

Learn firsthand about Cape Breton Island's unique twist on traditional Celtic music and the foundations of Cape Breton culture. Internationally-renowned performers will entertain you with lyrical songs of the island, traditional fiddle tunes, and a brief introduction to life and music on the island -- then and now.

Kick up your heels and participate in a Cape Breton square set, sing along, clap your hands or stomp your feet as you participate in this ceilidh-style (pronounced "kay-lee", meaning party) experience. It's all about making memories and having fun.

Light refreshments are served during the performance -- don't miss trying the traditional Cape Breton oatcakes. For more information visit www.spiritofthefiddle.ca.

Notes:

Your cruise may have entertainment on board that incorporates a fiddle player. Music and culture enthusiasts will nonetheless enjoy listening to the talented local fiddlers in Sydney.
