    Dirty Linen, April/May 1999

    Putting out compilations of music from festivals has been going on since there have been festivals. Putting together collections of studio material as an introduction to an upcoming festival is a relatively new idea. Celtic Colours International Festival on Cape Breton Island has done this twice. The 1997 edition is called The Road Home and it works as a fine introduction to the festival as well as the music of Canada's Atlantic Provinces. Mary Jane Lamond, Natalie MacMaster, The Barra MacNeils and Ashley MacIsaac are only a few of the artists presented here. Toss in tracks from Sharon Shannon and Capercaillie, and you've got a portrait of some of the most exciting artists in modern Celtic music. The 1998 collection, The Second Wave takes this one step further and includes six previously unreleased tracks, including duos of Sharon Shannon/Natalie MacMaster and Alasdair Fraser/Tony McManus. Both recordings have extensive liner notes on the artists, and the second collection includes web page addresses. Both are excellent introductions to the music of Eastern Canada. (Jim Lee : Dirty Linen, April/May 1999)
