Hard-driving, clean, lively and passionate, traditional yet original; Colin Grant’s fiddle playing has stepped to the forefront of the East Coast traditional music scene – and people are sitting up and taking notice. Although most at home with traditional Cape Breton fiddle music, his versatility as both a lead and side musician has given him experiences in a variety of traditional styles, in addition to folk, rock and country genres.
Scott Macmillan has a passion for creating music. This love has inspired exploration into genres from rock to blues, classical to choral, Celtic to jazz, as well as modern and avant-garde. In 2014 Scott received the Portia White Prize, Nova Scotia’s Top Artist Prize. A multiple East Coast Music Award winner, Scott has played a significant role expanding audiences for Atlantic Canadian music both nationally and internationally for over 40 years.
