Celebrate St. Patrick's day in fine Celtic style! Ben Miller and Anita MacDonald join together, blending the rich traditional sound of the Cape Breton fiddle, with the fiery edge of the Scottish Border pipes. Combining their creative vision with influences from Old and New World Gaelic traditions, they create a powerful sound, heralded as "one of the most important folk acts on the Island [Cape Breton] today." (Wendy Bergfeldt-Munro, Producer/Host CBC). Tempering the sharp edge of the pipes and fiddle, Ben and Anita are joined by friends from the Maritimes and beyond. Supported by a dynamic acoustic guitar, they create a sound that has captivated audiences across North America and further afield. A cocktail of tradition, distilled like a pure drop of the Canadian Maritimes, their unique blend of driving dance music transcends boundaries - equally at home at a kitchen ceilidh or on a late night festival stage. "... Fiery, fresh, yet totally traditional." (Alex Monaghan, Piping Today Magazine).
