coming attractions: The Celtic Colours Festival





The Celtic Colours festival is coming up, and tickets are already on sale. This fesitval of Cape Breton and music from other Celtic lands takes place from 5 through 13 October this year, with appearances from the Chieftains, Dougie MacLean, Buddy MacMaster, Fiona and Ciaran MacGillvray, and loads more fine musicians in venues across Cape Breton. Cape Breton music is a style rooted in Scotland and shaped by Atlantic Canada. It's a festival, and a place, well worth visitng for the warmth of the people and the music -- though not always, in October, the weather! more at the festival's website, including ticket sales, transport information, and artist schedules
