Celtic Colours coming in October
Just about a month from now, musicians from Cape Breton, up in the far north of Nova Scotia in Atlantic Canada, will come home to the island, and welcome fellow artists from Scotland, Ireland, the United States and other parts of Canada to share and celebrate the land, its music, and its culture. It really is an event not to be missed. This year artists include Natalie MacMaster, Donnell Leahy, Tony McManus, KImberly Fraser, Rachel Davis, Catriona Mackay, Alasdair Fraser, and others you’ve met here along the music road, as well as many more whose work you will enjoy.
The festival runs 8 through 16 October this year. Concerts are already selling out. Even if you won’t make it this year, check out the festival’s web site for insights into Cape Breton music, and to what makes Celtic Colours an event fans and artists love to return to, year after year.
