Celtic Colours Festival

Celtic Colours is under way and we're soaking in music. First Oak & Thorn review is up: Tunes Galore - 5 bands in one show! Missed most of the Festival Club - it was packed and we couldn't find a place to park - went back around 2AM and caught the last two acts: blistering instrumental sets from Brendan Power and Tim Edey, and a great set from The Outside Track.

Managed a decent night's sleep - almost 7 hours, practically unheard-of at these festivals! About to head off for lunch, then the Piper's Ceilidh at 2 PM, followed by a community-hosted Thanksgiving Dinner at 4:30, then it's down the road to Whycocomagh (love these Micmac names!) for Natalie MacMaster and 4 other bands. And I'll probably go from there to the Festival Club again, while Herself cranks out another review. That's something like 8 hours of music in one day.

We'll be posting a review pretty much every day on Oak & Thorn, and shorter notes on the Oak & Thorn Facebook page.

Anybody else here attending this Festival?
