Acclaimed Cape Breton musician Heather Rankin headlines at Celtfest

Almonte Celtfest 2018 is honoured and proud to announce Heather Rankin to the 2018 lineup this year!

Heather Rankin is a songwriter, singer and a 2018 Juno nominee for “A Fine Line”.

After twenty-five years of performing with her siblings, Heather Rankin comes into her own with “A Fine Line”, her debut solo record. This is Rankin like you have never heard her before, breaking away from The Rankin Family’s signature sound, and forging her own musical legacy with her poetic, intimate original songs, and an eclectic mix of others.

A Fine Line is an exploration of the balance between grief and joy, love and loss, and life and death.

While the sound is distinctively Heather’s own, songs like “We Walk As One” conjure evocative imagery from the past she shared with her siblings, and fans all over the world.

Come out early Sunday, July 8th for the best seating. Come for the day! Heck! Come for the weekend! We promise you will have the time of your life!

Stay tuned here for more lineup announcements.
