Each October we welcome students from all over the world to the Buddy MacMaster Fiddle Camp, a week-long fiddle camp offered at the Celtic Music Centre during the week of the Celtic Colours International Festival. The camp runs for 5 days and allows students the chance to study with 2 Cape Breton fiddlers each day, for a total of 10 different instructors over five days, each instructor having their own unique style of Cape Breton fiddle playing.
Classes are aimed at intermediate and advanced players who wish to further their skills and learn the Cape Breton style of playing from some of Cape Breton’s most well known fiddlers. During lunch break each day, students will enjoy a Ceilidh featuring the two instructors from that day as well as guest musicians.
Registration is available for the full 5 days at a reduced price or pick and choose the days you wish to attend.
The Masters Concert, which kicks off the school, and showcases the fiddle instructors in concert,
will take place on: Thursday, Oct 6, 2016 Always an amazing conert that sells out quickly!
