Biography

Hailing from Mabou, Cape Breton Island on Canada’s east coast, they were raised in a Gaelic-speaking household and immersed in traditional and Gaelic music from a young age. They learned the pipes and fiddle at the Gaelic College in St. Ann’s, Nova Scotia, joining the World Champion Gaelic College Pipe Band. Over the years, Kenneth and Angus have won many prestigious awards on the competitive piping circuit, but have always favoured the traditional side of their music. 

Kenneth has gained a reputation as being one of the finest fiddlers and pipers playing in Cape Breton today. His lively, musical playing has him much in demand for sessions and dances, and he has performed and recorded with artists such as Beòlach, Mary Jane Lamond, Dawn & Margie Beaton Band with whom he has toured North America and Europe.

Since moving to Scotland more than ten years ago Angus has become very involved in the traditional music scene of the West Highlands. He is a founding member of west coast-based supergroup Dàimh with whom he has toured extensively and released four critically acclaimed albums. Angus also plays regularly with The Rachel Walker Band and Na Trì Seudan. He is a much sought-after music tutor and session musician, touring and collaborating with acts such as Breabach, Dannsa, It’s Jo and Danny and the mighty Galician Anxo Lorenzo Band.

Together, some of their performance highlights include the Ceòlas Summer Music School in South Uist, the Blàs Festival in the Scottish Highlands and the Celtic Colours International Festival in Cape Breton as well as dances, sessions and ceilidhs on both sides of the Atlantic.
