It’s Canadian Thanksgiving and that means the long weekend is here. What better way is there to celebrate the occasion than to get out for some music, some dancing, maybe a couple of drinks with friends, and take the opportunity to give thanks—for whatever it is you’re thankful for. One of the Festival’s few licensed concerts, the Celtic Cabaret at Membertou Trade and Convention Centre has become a Saturday night tradition at Celtic Colours over the years. Tonight’s show features Cape Breton fiddler Ashley MacIsaac paired up with the first of a number of piano players he’ll be performing with this year, Antigonish county’s Jackie Dunn MacIsaac. Prince Edward Island fiddler Gordie MacKeeman will have his dancing shoes on when he and his Rhythm Boys make their Celtic Colours debut alongside Nadine Landry and Sammy Lind joining us from Eastern Quebec. Gordie’s old-timey, bluegrass sound and Nadine and Sammy’s repertoire of fiddle tunes, early country, and Cajun songs will certainly go a long way to keeping those toes a-tapping. And speaking of singing and dancing and fiddle playing, Lucy MacNeil is well-known for all three, on stage with her brothers in the Barra MacNeils. She has recently been working on a solo album and performing on her own with Rob Durando. Lucy will be drawing on this material tonight accompanied by Rob, Boyd MacNeil, and Lisa Gallant MacNeil. *19 & over. Photo ID required.
