This year’s Cabot Trail Acoustic Festival is back in 2014 and festival organizers are excited to announce a couple new Maritime headliners. Nova Scotia blues rocker Charlie A’Court and PEI’s own lady of song Christine Campbell will kick off a main stage performance Sat August 23, 2014 and again on Sunday afternoon August 24, 2014.

There are many other local solo artists and bands that will round out the lineup this year including Decota McNamara, Jeremy Pike and LeeBoy. You are again encouraged to spread the word about this year’s festival on the Cabot Trail and share with friends on Facebook and invite your family and friends. This is a true player’s festival with lots of ways to participate including open mics, workshops, jams, and live performances.

The “acoustic” focus again this year will be showcasing the many local amateur and professional musicians across the Maritimes who choose to play music from a variety of genres including folk, bluegrass, roots, country, blues and original on acoustic instruments.

You are encouraged to invite your family to this summer event as well as promoting the festival by sharing with your friends on Facebook

Where is the festival located?

The festival again this year will be hosted on the Cabot Shores Wilderness Resort, a 55-acre private sanctuary on the famous Cape Breton Cabot Trail. The resort features breathtaking views, a 2000-foot ocean beachfront, a lakefront on Church Pond, a waterfall fed Indian Brook, and many modern conveniences often powered by solar or wood.

The resort also offers an amazing view of the Atlantic Ocean, St Ann’s Bay and the Bird Islands, Cape Breton and is just across the Englishtown Ferry a few minutes down the road.

Again this year, there will be food available on site in the main Chalet and a daily BBQ.
