Douglas has been turning heads in the Cape Breton fiddling community since the last ten years - and he's only in his early twenties. Trained by dedicated teachers like Bonnie Jean MacDonald, Margie, Dawn, and Andrea Beaton, Douglas has absorbed the proud history of the Cape Breton style of fiddling. Born and raised in the northern Inverness County community of Belle Cote with paternal roots just down the road from Margaree and Mabou, he has played piano in concerts since the age of five, and fiddle since he was nine. Douglas is a veteran of Celtic Colours and many of the larger square dances in Cape Breton. He released his first CD in 2010. The CD shows Douglas honouring the tradition handed down to him by his teachers and the many great Cape Breton fiddlers who have influenced Cape Breton fiddle playing.
