The Broad Cove Scottish Concert, celebrating its 61st concert, is deemed as the largest outdoor Scottish concert in Cape Breton. The concert holds great significance to the musical culture of our Scottish heritage. The strong dedication of our volunteers has made this concert possible throughout the years. On this, our 61st anniversary, we salute our volunteers. Entertainment includes traditional piping, fiddling, drumming, dancing and singing.
