Traditional Irish Music
Celtic Colours have announced their line-up for the 2015 festival. It covers a wide range of traditions and features some very well-known artists including Loreena McKennitt, String Sisters, Ricky Skaggs, Fred Morrison, Paddy Keenan, Ashley MacIsaac, Donnell Leahy, The Barra MacNeils, and Laura Smith.
It also includes a return for We Banjo 3, Irish harp player Laoise Kelly, Helene Blum and Harald Haugaard, April Verch, Nic Gareiss and many more.
According to their website on the new artist front "Mec Lir is a vibrant young band from the Isle of Man with a range of instrumentation and a fun, up-beat sound. Alberta’s Calvin Vollrath is an internationally renowned treasure in the world of Old Tyme fiddle music and, believe it or not, this is his first visit to Celtic Colours. Open the Door for Three is a new group but includes some old friends. Fiddler Liz Knowles and piper Kieran O’Hare have been spending time in Cape Breton for years, so it’s great to have them part of the festival. And speaking of friends, the East Pointers is a new band from across the strait, but actually great pals of Cape Breton. It’s Tim and Koady Chaisson’s latest configuration, and we can’t wait!"
