Troy MacGillivray is an accomplished musician who was born into a rich cultural tradition and has been performing from a very young age across Canada, North America and all over the globe. Troy plays the music of his ancestors who immigrated to Canada from Scotland over 200 years ago. With 6 CDs and numerous ECMAs, Music Nova Scotia and Canadian Folk Music awards and nominations to his credit, Troy balances traditional music with his own internationally acclaimed compositions. He has a roots-centered approach to his fiddle and piano playing that has the power to inspire any audience, who are constantly captivated by his flying fingers and energetic pace and occasional step dance too! Troy will be performing in duos with J.P. Cormier, Liz Carroll and Kimberley Fraser during this year’s festival and in a powerhouse super-session with Andrea Beaton, Wendy MacIsaac, Mairi Rankin, Shelly Campbell and Allan Dewar.
