I thought this would be a very interesting selection today. It is a recording from the Celtic Colours International Festival featuring Cape Breton artist Mary Jane Lamond and Scottish singer Cathy Ann MacPhee. What is fascinating to me is that they both sing the same song in the way in which they learned it. It shows how the song has evolved and changed on its journey from Scotland across the sea to Cape Breton. There is about a minute of dialogue before they actually start singing but I thought it was too interesting to cut out. I hope you enjoy!

I have been to the Celtic Colours International Festival and it is a wonderful experience for music lovers. It brings together artists from all over the world to various venues over nine days in Cape Breton, Nova Scotia. For more information, you can see the Celtic Colours International Festival website.
