The Celtic Colours Collection (a book)

Every October Cape Breton hosts The Celtic Colours International Festival, attracting both musicians and audience from every corner of the globe.

Each year there has been a compilation CD. Celtic Colours 13 is of particluar interest to friends of Cranford Publications due to the inclusion of a track by Paul Cranford and another by the group Rocky Shore.

Rocky Shore includes two local violin makers (David Papazian and Otis Tomas and as well Paul’s wife Sarah Beck and gutarist-producer Paul MacDonald. Sarah’s tune Wildfire and Paul MacDonalds’s tune The North River Fox are transcribed below.
