Mary Jane Lamond

Cape Breton

Renowned Gaelic singer Mary Jane Lamond has dedicated her musical career to the preservation of Scottish Gaelic songs, garnering numerous JUNO and East Coast Music Award nominations, critical acclaim, and a worldwide audience for her music. Mary Jane’s five solo recordings create a respectful and beautiful framework for ancient Gaelic songs and her spell-binding performances make these selections truly come alive. A two-time Artist in Residence at the Festival, Mary Jane has been a mainstay on Celtic Colours stages since 1997, performing on her own and with long-time musical collaborator Wendy MacIsaac, with whom she recorded the award-winning album Seinn in 2012. This year she will be performing during the Còmhla Cruinn: Gathered Together concert in the Gaelic hotbed of Christmas Island.
