From Scotland to Louisiana, accordions, fiddles and songs connect the Creole, Gaelic and Cape Breton worlds. Scottish accordion player Phil Cunningham is an old friend of the Festival, but his friendship with fiddler Aly Bain goes back even further. Their highly-impressive playing and Phil's irrepressible sense of humour have endeared them to Cape Breton audiences. Mary Jane Lamond and Wendy MacIsaac are also known for their sense of humour on stage, as well as their seemingly effortless connection. Not surprising since they have been playing together for more than 20 years. Seph Peters, who also plays guitar in their band, will be accompanying Inverness County fiddler Gillian Boucher, who has performed at Celtic Colours since 1998. And all together they will welcome our new friends from Louisiana, Les Amis Creole.
