Get out and enjoy a night of music in one of the most common and natural spots for it – the pub! Get cozy with a sing-a-long, or be ready to hoot and holler to jigs and reels. Anything goes on these nights – be ready for some fun!
with Ben Miller (pipes) Anita MacDonald (fiddle) & Zakk Cormier (guitar)
-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, described as “Fiery… Fresh, yet totally traditional.” – Piping Today Magazine (Glasgow, UK) As well as performing as a duo, Ben and Anita tour as a trio with 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. As Miller | MacDonald | Cormier, these three young artists create a powerful sound, which transcends the boundaries between Cape Breton, Scottish, and Acadian traditions.
