Donna-Marie DeWolfe

Cape Breton

Donna-Marie DeWolfe, of River Tillard near St. Peter’s in Richmond County, has been playing Cape Breton fiddle music since she was ten years old and comes from a line of musicians on both sides of her family. Her great-grandfather on her father’s side was a fiddler, while her grandfather on her mother’s side was both a fiddler and a fiddle maker. As a child, Donna-Marie heard plenty of fiddle music in her home. Her father is a Cape Breton traditional music lover and he always had fiddle music playing in the house. Donna-Marie is very active in the Cape Breton music scene, playing for ceilidhs and dances around the island and as in-house fiddler at the Celtic Music Interpretive Centre in Judique where she regularly entertains visitors from around the world. Donna-Marie lists Shelly Campbell as a big influence on her playing.
