Port Hawkesbury Civic Centre, Port Hawkesbury – 7:30 PM, Tickets: $60/50/40, Reserved Seating
Family and friends kick off the 2014 Festival as we welcome back our good buddy Phil Cunningham and his long-time touring pal Aly Bain. We are also happy to welcome three pals from Sweden, Väsen, who we met at the Festival last year. They’ll be joined by two generations of Gaelic singing Campbells from Scotland; fiddling, piping, piano-playing MacKenzie brothers from Mabou; and Cape Breton cousins Ashley and Wendy MacIsaac. Tonight’s concert will also introduce this year’s Artists in Residence, Nic Gareiss and Mac Morin. Top it all off with the pipers of Nuallan and Sabra MacGillivray & Celtic Touch Dancers and this concert will get the Festival off to a rousing start.
