“THE WAIT WAS WORTH IT. CAPE BRETON’S FIREBRAND FIDDLER ASHLEY MACISAAC SPORTS SOME OF THE MOST LOYAL FANS ON THE PLANET...[AND]OH MY, DO THOSE FINGERS FLY!” — THE VANCOUVER SUN

Described by The Toronto Star as “a fiery and brilliant player,” fiddling phenom Ashley MacIsaac grew up under the spotlight as a dynamic young fiddler from Cape Breton, Nova Scotia, and his revolutionary approach to his art has brought him international acclaim. The enfant terrible of Canadian fiddling perhaps, but he has pushed the traditional styles of Celtic music into new areas, incorporating rock, pop, and everything imaginable in between to Celtic performance.
