Let's see... at this year's Celtic Colours International Festival... there are 46 shows slated, with over 300 artists performing throughout the 9 days of the festival...with only one YOU.....hmmmmmm...

A Taste of the Festival Concert in Sydney October 6, 2012Well, I'm no mathematician, but let's settle on the fact that seeing them all would be a feat that only a super human celtic lovin' hero could manage... however... in an effort to give you a little samplin' of all of it – the good folks at Celtic Colours have come up with a "Taste of the Festival". With performances from 7 talented acts including...Fiddlers Bid, John Doyle, Cyril MacPhee, Alan Kelly Gang, Sprag Session, Rachel Aucoin & Sabine Jaques along with the MacArthur School of Dance - it's truly delicious!

And here's how they're describing it...

“With high-impact, high-energy bands from Shetland, Ireland and Cape Breton; songs from home and away; and award-winning local dancers, this concert has a bit of everything. We've waited years to experience the amazing Fiddlers' Bid from Shetland. We'll introduce Artists in Residence John Doyle and Cyril MacPhee and also welcome home Cheticamp native pianist Rachel Aucoin and her accordion-playing husband Sabin Jacques. Come to think of it, this actually looks more like a feast than a taste.”

It's like a smorgasbord of entertainment – so don't miss it!

The "Taste of the Festival" concert goes 7:30 pm this Saturday, October 6th at the Joan Harriss Cruise Pavilion in Sydney. For more on the show and how to get tickets click here.
