Scott Macmillan

Nova Scotia

Scott’s passion for music is driven by his need to be creative and he seeks opportunities in all aspects of music making, inspiring exploration into rock, blues, classical, choral, Celtic and jazz.​ ​The 2014 recipient of Nova Scotia’s top Artist Prize, the Portia White Prize, Scott has played a significant role in expanding audiences for Atlantic Canadian music, nationally and internationally, taking him to places like New York's Carnegie Hall, the British Isles, Germany and back and forth across Canada. In 2017, Scott received two East Coast Music Awards: Traditional Instrumental Recording for GOOD2GO, a duo recording with Cape Breton fiddler Colin Grant, and Classical Composition for "Currents of Sable Island", composed for solo voice and chamber ensemble. Continuing to remain active as a performer and composer, Scott also began mentoring a new generation of guitarists at the Fountain School of Performing Arts, Dalhousie University since 2008.
