Ongoing: Celt's Cauldron Ceilidhs, Cape Breton Island, Nova Scotia, 1st and 3rd weekend of every month. The cottage where the ceilidhs take place is located on Lake Ainslie about 15 miles east of Inverness. Any interested person should call (902)756-2214. We are also a new harp and folk music store in the area, and are doing the ceilidhs out of our home for the love of Celtic music. Fiddles, whistles, flutes and other instruments are welcome. The emphasis is traditional old world Celtic. I am particularly fond of slow airs, if that piques anyone else's interest. - Info courtesy of Cliff, harpandlore@yahoo.com
