Learn to play Cape Breton tunes


Ottawa Cape Breton Session occasionally hosts workshops in piano, fiddle, guitar and step dance led by artists from Cape Breton. Past workshops have included Andrea Beaton, Troy MacGillivray, Jake Charron, Denis Lanctot, Glenn Graham, Dara MacDonald-Smith, Adam Young, and many more. We currently have no workshops planned for 2021.
