Celtic Colours Live

They say, “You can’t take it with you”. And while that remains true in its original context, the Celtic Colours International Festival has found a way for music fans from around the world to do just that. For the third year in a row, the Cape Breton festival has sent its team of recording engineer, Jamie Foulds, and producer, Declan O’Doherty, all over the Island to capture the magic of this unique music and cultural event.

Celtic Colours Live – Volume 3 includes 14 tracks recorded during the nine days of the festival. Showcasing artists from Cape Breton, PEI, Newfoundland, Nova Scotia, Scotland, Ireland, Sweden, Norway and the United States, this collection opens with a stunning group of tunes by international group, The String Sisters, recorded during the opening concert in Port Hawkesbury, and goes on to present a cross-section of musical experiences from the 2015 festival.

Original songs from Old Man Luedecke and Stewart MacNeil, and traditional songs by Scottish Gaelic singer, Kathleen MacInnes, and Irish-American trio, Open The Door For Three, are balanced with tunes by Fred Morrison and Paddy Keenan on pipes and whistles. J.P. Cormier weighs in with a blistering set of guitar tunes recorded during the closing concert at Centre 200 in Sydney, while various combinations of fiddle, piano, guitar and banjo are sure to delight lovers of traditional music everywhere.
