Cape Breton

Colin Watson graduated from Memorial University, Sir Wilfred Grenfell Campus and lives in Jamesville, Victoria County.

With a repertoire of puirt a bheul (mouth music), he has sung for BBC Scotland and appeared at concerts and milling frolics throughout the Island. Currently working as a heritage interpreter at Baile nan Gàidheal / Highland Village Museum in Iona, Colin has an active interest in Cape Breton music and step dancing and frequently enjoys square sets at the local halls.
