Quote

When you cross over to “the Island” from mainland Nova Scotia, you can almost hear the music in the air — fiddle music, more specifically.  Cape Breton has the most fiddle players per capita in the world and it isn’t difficult to find a quiet pub or country dance to try your hand at Cape Breton step or square dancing with your honey.
