The Celtic Colours Sessions with the Barra MacNeils plus a tribute Concert to Gene MacLellan on Atlantic Airwaves

t-cd-celticcolourssessions.jpg This week Atlantic Airwaves has two collaborative projects that took place in the last year. We'll hear from the Barra MacNeils recent CD 'The Celtic Colours Sessions'. The Barras recorded with nearly a dozen different performers while attending the Festival in Cape Breton in 2011.

As well, the iconic songs of Gene MacLellan feature on Atlantic Airwaves this week. From a tribute concert recorded last January we'll hear 'Snowbird', 'The Call' and 'Put Your Hand In The Hand'. Performers include Lennie Gallant, Ron Hynes, Meaghan Blanchard, Dennis Ellsworth, and Gene's daughter Catherine. To watch the video of this concert click here.
