I keep reading all the comments below and it clearly shows that this music makes everyone happy. Canada is such an amazing country that lets you experience the most incredible nature, music, people etc etc. Attending this festival during the fall is a dream. Been a happy 2 years since I moved from India. And of course, the maritimes is the best!!

Just the best. When you consider well over half the players have driven up our dirt road here in Western Maine to play at Skye Theatre, it is even more satisfying. Well done Celtic Colours for bringing this amazing ensemble together. Well done all.

It was a great concert! Well timed given that the area was flooded two days later.

I have viewed this video multiple times and every time I watch it it makes me feel happy. Just watching the musicians playing their instruments, they all have such character and seem to be enjoying themselves. I would love to see this group in person sometime if they ever come to L.A., CA.

I'd love to know how Corrina Hewat miked and controlled her harp from sympathetically echoing all the tones flying around.

When Celtic meets Bulgarian...part of this is in 7/16 time, the rhythm of a Bulgarian ruchenitsa dance.
