TRIO - Miller | MacDonald | Cormier
Ben Miller & Anita MacDonald have become renownedw 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 been heralded as “One of the most important folk acts on Cape Breton Island today.” (CBC Mainstreet - Nova Scotia, CAN)
Joining them in this project is Zakk Cormier, a talented multi-instrumentalist with deep roots in the Acadian music community of Prince Edward Island. Zakk brings his talents as a creative and dynamic guitar accompanist, as well as the driving rhythms of Acadian foot-percussion.
As a trio, these three young artists create a powerful sound, which transcends the boundaries between Cape Breton, Scottish, and Acadian traditions.
