About CMIC



The Celtic Music Interpretive 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.

The CMIC offers an in-depth look into the history, culture and music of Cape Breton Island. We were designated the official cultural Archives for the County of Inverness in 2009 and designated the "Official Celtic Music Centre of Nova Scotia" by the Nova Scotia Legislature in 2013.
We offer year-round Ceilidhs, educational workshops in fiddle, piano and dance, Gaelic language immersion classes, Youth music mentorship programs, an archives and resource library, a recording studio, an interactive exhibit room, one-on-one demonstrations with our in-house musicians, a gift shop and online store promoting locally made products and recordings, a full service restaurant, fully licensed bar and more.

The CMIC caters to youth, seniors and everyone in between with programs and events to suit all age groups and contributes to building a vibrant local community and economy. From June-October, The CMIC offers live music seven days a week. Our Sunday Ceilidhs run all year long and we offer various workshops and music events throughout the year. In October, we welcome students from all over the world to the  Buddy MacMaster Fiddle Camp, which takes place during the week of the Celtic Colours International Festival.
