October 9th – 17th 2009

The Celtic Colours International Festival is entering its 13th year of celebrating the only living Celtic culture in North America. The event takes place on beautiful Cape Breton Island, off Canada’s east coast. With the fall leaves being their most awe inspiring in the fall of the year, we have our festival amidst the breathtaking views of Cape Bretons true colours. One of the unique aspects of Celtic Colours is that it takes place in communities that have maintained our culture for the past 250 years. The festival features the finest Celtic Artists from around the world together with many of the wonderful Cape Breton artists who live here and travel the globe in celebration of Celtic music. International Guests in previous years have included the Chieftains, Altan, Dougie MacLean, Carlos Nunez, Phil Cunningham, Bela Fleck, Balzing Fiddles, Brock McGuire Band, Liam o Maonlai and many more. Events take place in all manner of venues ranging from fire halls and churches to soft set theatres and arenas. You will meet up with festival goers from 25 countries as well as enjoy some of the genuine hospitality that Cape Breton is known for around the world.
