Celtic Colours Live 2013 - Samples from the Album

Hot on the heels of another very successful event, the Celtic Colours International Festival is releasing a compilation album of music recorded live during the 2013 festival. They have professionally recorded ten concerts in their entirety last October. The production team then sifted through nearly 27 hours of fantastic music to choose 15 tracks representing the best

 

 

performances and most magical moments that were captured on tape.

Celtic Colours 2013 Live represents a first for Celtic Colours, and is something they have wanted to do for a long time. It takes the audience directly to the concert to experience it as they remember it, or as if they were there. The 15 tracks include a variety of visitors, Cape Breton artists, tunes, songs and collaborations. The Nordic theme for 2013 is represented, as is the wide range of concert styles and venues.
