With the release of last year’s Celtic Colours – Live 2013, we were thrilled to fulfill a long-standing request from Celtic Colours fans to produce a live souvenir of the much-loved, 9 day, island-wide festival. Overjoyed by the results, and encouraged by the response, we rounded up the crew—producer Declan O’Doherty and engineer Jamie Foulds—to record a selection of concerts presented during this year’s festival.

Celtic Colours Live – Volume Two, featuring performers from Cape Breton, Ireland, Scotland, Shetland, Sweden, the US and Canada, includes sixteen tracks recorded during Celtic Colours 2014. Some of these performances are truly unique to the Celtic Colours experience like when Cape Breton’s fiddling ambassador Natalie MacMaster joins Irish accordion player Sharon Shannon onstage for a tune, revisiting the magic when they first met at the Festival in 1997, or percussive dancer Nic Gareiss’ collaborations with a variety of performers including Scottish-born harp player Maeve Gilchrist, fiddlers Darol Anger, Kimberley Fraser and Brittany Haas, and cello player Natalie Haas. There are songs sung in Gaelic, English, and Creole French and tunes from around the Celtic world, all impressively performed by friends of the festival old and new.

From beautiful slow songs to lively instrumentals, we think this collection of performers and performances nicely captures the theme of “friends and family” that permeated the festival this year. Whether you are reliving memories of concerts you attended or catching up on what you missed, this record of the 2014 Celtic Colours International Festival is one you need to have in your collection.

Celtic Colours Live – Volume Two is available now on iTunes or you can order copies through celtic-colours.com. The CD will be available to buy locally next week at the Curiosity Shop on Charlotte Street in Sydney, Colaisde na Gàidhlig / The Gaelic College Gift Shop in St. Ann’s, and the Celtic Music Interpretive Centre in Judique.
