Celtic Colours International Festival
Have you ever planned your vacation around a festival? I always have good intentions to do just that because festivals are colourful and vibrant. And they are a great way to meet people and delve deeper into the culture of a destination.
One festival worth moving your vacation dates for is the Celtic Colours International Festival in Cape Breton, in Nova Scotia, Canada.
For nine days and nights, famous internationally and top local musicians perform music in different venues throughout Cape Breton Island.
The venues range from large concert halls, arenas and school auditoriums to churches, community halls, clubs and pubs.
You’ll hear music from a variety of instruments including pianos, guitars, bagpipes, accordions, harps and flutes. But the one thing that glues it all together, regardless of the instrument or style of music, is its Celtic flavour.
