Cape Breton, Nova Scotia, is once again preparing for its annual world-class Celtic entertainment and cultural extravaganza this October. Over the past four years, the Celtic Colours International Festival has established a reputation as one of the foremost Celtic music events in the world.
This year’s performers include Tommy Makem, Sean McGuire, the Barra MacNeils, Dougie McLean, Danu, Kilt, Eleanor Shanley, and more than two hundred other musicians and singers. From concerts to ceilidhs, Celtic Colours treats audiences to a Celtic experience possible only on Cape Breton Island. ♦
