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. Besides having received an ECMA nomination for Roots / Traditional Solo Album of the Year for his self-titled debut album, Grant currently performs with contemporary Celtic instrumental group Sprag Session.

Jason Roach is one of the most impressive piano players you will ever hear. With a style all his own, and an unparalleled intensity on the keys, you’ll have to remind yourself that there are other players on the stage. Born and raised in Chéticamp, Cape Breton, he began playing the keys at the age of five and was introduced to the Cape Breton style at thirteen. He has a Bachelor of Music degree from St. Francis Xavier University and has been performing since 1997.
