About the Music

Facebook Group

The aim of Ottawa Cape Breton Session is to share the music and culture of Cape Breton Island with the National Capital area. The Sunday Pub sessions are open to anyone who enjoys the music. Sessions are primarily for the musicians to share the experience of traditional music, are open to anyone who can play the common tunes of the tradition, and are great way to learn new tunes and meet new people. Want to join in? You can! To get familiar with the Cape Breton repertoire we have practice sessions every other Sunday from 2-5pm at various locations. If you already know some of the tunes join in the first and third Sunday of each month at the Mill St. Brew Pub (555 Wellington St.) Sessions are led by Aylene, or sometime other folks. This session is a mix of session and solo playing, let us know if you have something special to share with the group.

How to Host a House Session 

All you need is a space big enough to put 6-8 fiddlers in, some chairs without arms, and a willingness to listen to the same tune played over and over again as we practice. If you have a piano let us know, otherwise we'll bring our own keyboard. We can also bring folding chairs. Sessions are BYOB but usually the hosts provide some non-alcoholic beverages and a little something for snack time. Interested? Talk to Aylene or Beth or send an email to cbsession@cbsession.com
