We are thrilled to have been invited to present a lineup of fantastic Cape Breton talent during Temple Bar Tradfest in Dublin and Celtic Connections in Glasgow. “A Taste of Celtic Colours” will be a Cape Breton ceilidh showcasing some of our leading contemporary stars, including Mary Jane Lamond and Wendy MacIsaac’s new band, fiddler/pianist Kimberley Fraser and singer-songwriter Cyril MacPhee.
In its 8th year, Temple Bar TradFest is recognized as one of the biggest and best traditional Irish music and culture festivals in Ireland. It takes place over 5 days in January and includes 200 events. TradFest invited Celtic Colours to put together a show that would represent the quality of our festival to be presented at theirs in 2013. “A Taste of Celtic Colours” will take place at the Dublin City Hall on January 24th.
On Friday, January 25th the show will be part of the Celtic Connections festival at the Tron Theatre in Glasgow. Since our inception in 1997, Celtic Colours has been one of Celtic Connections’ closest kindred festivals, building on the island’s unique Scottish and Gaelic heritage with a fruitful two-way traffic of artists, ideas and audiences.
Looking forward to catching up with old friends and meeting new ones as we bring Cape Breton to the UK!
Celtic Colours is grateful to Enterprise Cape Breton Corporation for their support of this initiative.
