Colin Grant

Balancing respect for traditional Cape Breton Scottish tunes with a litany of contemporary band and sideman projects, Colin Grant has become a common denominator for East Coast Canadian roots music. While accompanying everyone from Canadiana folk heroes The Men of the Deeps to local bluegrass powerhouse Crowdis Bridge, the Cabot Trail-based fiddler has garnered further critical acclaim with the launch of hard-hitting contemporary Cape Breton trio Hauler, and a Juno nomination for his work with Newfoundland’s best-kept folk secret Rum Ragged, who we’re happy to welcome back to Celtic Colours this year. Colin also features in Adam Young’s Yearbook project with Boyd MacNeil, Brad Reid, Thomas Allen, Emily Dingwall, Zach MacLean, and Jason MacDonald.
