We went to hear great music two nights in a row with different shows each night. The intimate venue and excellent sound made for a great evening. Highly recommended. Check out the shows when in Louisbourg.

The Keltic band is wrapping up their third summer season. They are truly superb musicians with a broad repertory and immense musical skills. They perform nightly for an audience of 50-75. It's a shame more people aren't exposed to their music.
