Since getting their start twenty years ago at a late night session during the Celtic Colours festival, Beòlach has established itself as one of Cape Breton’s most exciting and innovative traditional bands. Performing a lively mix of Cape Breton, Scottish and Irish tunes, the group features Mairi Rankin (fiddle, step-dance), Wendy MacIsaac (fiddle, piano, step-dance), Matt MacIsaac (pipes, whistles, guitar), and Mac Morin (piano, accordion, step-dance). The band has thrilled audiences at festivals around the world with their energetic performances, witty presentation, and their versatility as dancers and instructors. Each of the players in Beòlach is a master performer in their own right, having played for dances and concerts around Cape Breton Island and beyond long before they got together as a group. This is a return to Harrison for one of the festival’s most beloved bands over the years. Tickets at harrisonfestival.com
