We’re back in Port Hawkesbury to wrap up the 21st Celtic Colours International Festival, and have we got a Grand Finale for you! We’ll catch up with our Artists in Residence, Buddy MacDonald and James Keelaghan, who have something special lined up for us tonight. Rhiannon Giddens and Dirk Powell bring the richest of Cajun and Appalachian folk traditions together, with Rhiannon’s soaring vocals at the forefront. Our next group, Ímar, may be young but these fellas put on quite the show. Their playing will amaze you. Cherish the Ladies are back to delight us one more time with their good humour, impressive playing, and intricate arrangements. And Cape Breton’s travelling troubadour J.P. Cormier will deliver the fast-flying guitar picking you’ve come to expect, with songs that speak from the heart of life here on the Island. With this lineup of singers and players, it’s safe to say we can expect a pretty “grand” finale for this one. And then maybe, just maybe, one last night at the Festival Club? Sure, why not.
