Big Pond is a community with a rich legacy of traditional tunes and celebrated songwriters. This concert reflects the place of importance music holds in the area. Blanche Sophocleous is a singer and guitar- player from Big Pond who performed in the folk group Sons of Skye during the 1970s and ‘80s. Rachel Davis and Darren McMullen, bandmates in Còig, make a lovely duo with Rachel’s singing and fiddling and Darren’s mastery of every other instrument. Howie MacDonald and Hilda Chiasson will add some lively tunes and we welcome singer-songwriter Garnet Rogers who makes his first appearance at Celtic Colours this afternoon. Take your time getting to this one and don’t miss the lovely views along the shores of the Bras d’Or. Nearby Meal: Baked Ham and Potato Scallop Supper
