In the years since it's beginning thousand and thousands of music fans from all over the world have descended upon beautiful Cape Breton Island to celebrate in song and dance and great fellowship.
For 9 days in 55 communities across the Island folks will gather for everything from concerts to cultural events...and oh my goodness the music that will be made!!!
Indeed the very best players on the planet will fill the festival with shows, circles, sessions and workshops - ending with the sweetest of celebrations on Saturday, October 13th in Sydney's Centre 200 with an event titled 50 Years of Celtic Charm.
That 50 years relates to the closing concert's headliners The Chieftains – who for half a century have been engaging audiences with their definitive style. Over the years they've embraced their Irish roots and breathed new life into traditional music.
Whether it's in a small session, with big symphonies or together with some of rock, pop and Country's biggest names – The Chieftains have won over the world with their sound and scored 6 Grammys along the way. How perfect then that Ireland’s Musical Ambassadors celebrate their 50th Anniversary tour with a stop at Celtic Colours.
The closing night concert also includes 4 other wonderful acts including Cape Breton's own Wendy MacIsaac & Mary Jane Lamond, Scotish group The Battlefield Band, BC born fiddler Daniel Lapp and Nova Scotia based stepping sensations The Diaga Irish Dance Performance Group.
What an incredible way to cap off Celtic Colours for another year! Don't miss it!!! SABS
