Adam Young

Cape Breton

Adam Young is a sought-after pianist from the tiny community of French Road. His unique style adds depth, solidity, and a joyful forward motion to the music. He created and directed the Louisbourg Playhouse’s popular music and comedy revue, Cape Breton Lyrics & Laughter, which has seen well over 350 performances since it began 17 years ago. He regularly plays at concerts, ceilidhs, square dances and sessions throughout Cape Breton, and has showcased his talents in Scotland and Ireland, across Canada and in the United States. His 2018 album with fiddler Dara Smith-MacDonald, The Lake Sessions, was nominated for a 2019 East Coast Music Award and a 2018 Music Nova Scotia Award. The duo’s follow-up album, Island, was released earlier this summer.
