Celtic ColoursSince 1997, the Celtic Colours International Festival has featured hundreds of musicians from all over the Celtic world and attracted tens of thousands of visitors to Cape Breton Island.

For nine days in October, Cape Breton Island is home to a unique celebration of music and culture as the Celtic Colours International Festival presents dozens of concerts all over the island, an extensive line-up of workshops, a visual art series of exhibitions, and a nightly Festival Club.
Over the years, artists have traveled from Scotland, Ireland, Wales, England, Brittany, Spain, Denmark, Germany, Norway, and Cuba as well as from across the United States and Canada to join the finest of Cape Breton's musicians, singers, dancers, storytellers and tradition-bearers for the annual Autumn celebration.

Every year during these nine days we take up a temporary home at Knox Presbyterian Church in Baddeck chatting with musicians, hearing the music and sharing it with you.

Join us every weekday afternoon between 4-6pm as we rebroadcast sections of our daily recordings from Knox Presbyterian Hall in Baddeck.
