We’re delighted to share a glimpse of the various types of community cultural events offered by our hundreds of community organization partners. The above videos provide a sneak peek at the community spirit ingrained in our partner organizations, and the enjoyment that our guests take from the experiences. You’ll want to include some of these in your Celtic Colours itinerary planning.
Every year Celtic Colours invites two unique artists to take on a leading role in some aspect of the festival as our Artists in Residence. This year’s Artists in Residence are Harald Haugaard from Denmark and Kimberley Fraser from Cape Breton.
Tributes to Cape Breton fiddlers Alex Francis MacKay and Joe Peter MacLean, the songs of the Rankins, and to both the Cape Breton Fiddlers’ Association and the Cape Breton Chorale, who are celebrating 40th anniversaries this year, are scheduled alongside new concerts celebrating dance traditions and night life in the 18th century at Fortress Louisbourg.
