It was fitting that during the Celtic Colours Festival, the new marketing co-operative, Celtic Heart of North America was launched.  Geoff MacDonald opened with a Gaelic song and the Beaton sisters, Dawn & Margie on fiddles performed several jigs and reels accompanied by Robert Deveau on piano.

The purpose of the co-operative was to provide easier access & connections for visitors who wanted to experience the Celtic culture and music on Cape Breton Island. The partners of this new initiative are Celtic Music Interpretive Centre, Celtic Colours Festival, Highland Village Museum, Gaelic College of Celtic Arts & Crafts, Municipalities of Inverness County & Victoria County, Feis An Eilein and the Glenora Inn & Distillery. The Celtic Heart website and blog  are now up and running and were announced during the launch.

Check out the video below to see the Beaton’s sisters performing at Red Shoe Pub in Mabou, Cape Breton. They are amazing…
