Kenneth MacKenzie

Cape Breton

Kenneth is well-known for his lively traditional style and for the strong Gaelic flavour to his playing. Raised in a Gaelic-speaking and very musical family in Mabou, Inverness County, Kenneth has been immersed in the Scottish language and culture since birth. He has been piping and teaching at dances, concerts and festivals all over the Atlantic Provinces, Ontario, Scotland and beyond for several years now and counts well known pipers John MacLean, Iain MacDonald and Angus MacKenzie, his older brother as his biggest musical influences. Kenneth released his first album, with his brother Angus, in 2010 with the assistance of Festival Volunteer Drive’er Association. Most recently he has teamed up with Keith MacDonald and Kevin Dugas in the exciting new traditional piping group Nuallan. Kenneth has also performed and recorded with artists including Beòlach, Mary Jane Lamond, and the Beaton Sisters Band with whom he has toured North America and Europe.
