“One of the most important folk acts on Cape Breton Island today.”
— CBC Mainstreet (Nova Scoita, CAN)
Ben Miller & Anita MacDonald have become renowned across Atlantic Canada and further afield for their synergistic, pipe and fiddle driven style of Gaelic dance-music. Joining together the musical traditions of Cape Breton and the Scottish Highlands, while incorporating influences from Ireland, Shetland and beyond, Ben and Anita have created a signature sound which Scotland's Piping Today Magazine has described as "Fresh, yet totally traditional."
As well as performing as a duo, Ben and Anita tour as trio, Miller - MacDonald - Cormier, featuring Acadian multi-instrumentalist, Zakk Cormier. Zakk is a dynamic musician with deep roots in the musical community of Prince Edward Island. He brings his talents as a sympathetic guitar accompanist, as well as the driving rhythm of Acadian foot-percussion.
With their latest album, "South Haven", this trio has created a powerful sound, which transcends the boundaries between Cape Breton, Scottish, and Acadian traditions. Since this release, their show has captivated audiences across the globe, from British Columbia and California, to Austria and Denmark.
