Featuring the Celtic Fiddle Festival & Friends

The Washington Post calls them “three of the finest folk violinists anywhere”. The Celtic Fiddle Festival is a true supergroup, bringing together three internationally acclaimed fiddlers - Kevin Burke (Ireland), Christian Lemaître (Brittany, France) and André Brunet (Quebec) – along with Ged Foley (guitar). Sold-out tours and standing ovations are the norm when these three fiddle stars come together to perform, each one a master of his own particular regional style. Together, their performances blend talent, tradition and humour in a potent mix that leaves their audiences shouting for more.
Also on the bill: Wendy MacIsaac is a gifted fiddler, piano player and step-dancer from Creignish, Cape Breton who has toured with Mary Jane Lamond, Ashley MacIsaac, Beòlach (her current band) and as a solo performer. Patrick Gillis is one of the finest guitarists to emerge from Cape Breton, and has appeared at festivals throughout the US, Canada and Europe with Beòlach.
Plus the Penk O'Donnell Dancers, BC Regiment Pipers
and an array of BC’s best musicians – it all adds up to a night to make St. Patrick proud!
