Ready to do a little jig and jive to the tune of a fiddle?

Slip into your dancing shoes and scoot over to The Schoolhouse at Peggy’s Cove, for a good old-fashioned Cèilidh. Celebrate with Cape Breton fiddle virtuosos Mairi Rankin and Wendy MacIsaac in an event that promises much more than just a jig and a reel.

As the Rankin Family’s firecracker, Mairi keeps the stage lively with her singing, step-dancing, and heartwarming fiddle tunes. Wendy MacIsaac, a ‘veteran’ fiddler of 35 years, carries the traditional sound with an enchanting finesse, her fingers striking the strings in ways that’d make your heart skip a beat. Between them, they’ve got a galaxy of awards, a heap of albums, and an insatiable passion for their Celtic roots.

With three half-hour shows daily, this Schoolhouse Cèilidh invites you to immerse yourself in Nova Scotian culture, learning Gaelic phrases and fancy footwork amidst the rich tapestry of Cape Breton fiddle music. All for the steal of $5, with ample parking at your disposal!

The Schoolhouse, since 1958, has seen countless melodies resonate off its historic walls. Now operated by the Peggy’s Cove Centre for Arts & Culture, it opens its doors to you – céad míle fáilte, or a hundred thousand welcomes!

What: Enjoy an intimate, interactive, and uniquely Nova Scotian cultural experience! Experience traditional Cape Breton fiddle music as it was meant to be heard.
