AllMusic Review by

The third volume in the series, Celtic Colours International Festival 1999: Forgotten Roots gathers more performances from the week-long Cape Breton Festival, with this volume providing a mini-snapshot of Celtic music's widespread influence in Western Europe and North America. Artists from Cape Breton, Scotland, and Ireland are included, of course, but there are also performers from the U.S., France, and Spain; their varying approaches to the music give the compilation a refreshing eclecticism, making it a worthy entry in the high-quality series.
