Tradfest Musicians back then

The Temple Bar TradFest was delighted to host some of the best talent from Canada as part of The Gathering 2013. The traditional music of Cape Breton stems from the Scottish and Irish immigrants who came to Canada more than 200 years ago. The Celtic Colours International Festival celebrates that culture while sharing it with other Celtic traditions from around the world. Mary Jane Lamond and Wendy MacIsaac and their band uphold the traditions with mesmerizing Gaelic songs, Cape Breton fiddle at its finest, piano, dance, and powerful rhythms. Cyril MacPhee brings a wealth of songs and his engaging voice to the stage and Kimberley Fraser provides thrills with her fiddle, piano and dance virtuosity.
