The Outside Track’s marriage of Celtic music, song and dance has been rapturously received around the world. Hailing from Scotland, Ireland, and Cape Breton, its five members are united by a love of traditional music and a commitment to creating new music on this as a foundation. They blend fiddle, accordion, harp, guitar, flute, whistle, step dance and vocals with breathtaking vitality. Their combination of boundless energy and unmistakable joie de vivre has won them a large following around the globe. Winner of Best Group in both the Live Ireland awards and the Tradition In Review awards, The Outside Track is one of the top Celtic acts in the world. They were Best Live Act nominees in the MG Alba Scots Traditional Music Awards, and won the German Radio Critics Prize, for their 2012 album Flash Company. This will be The Outside Track’s fourth time performing at Celtic Colours.
