Colin Grant

Cape Breton

Balancing respect for traditional Cape Breton Scottish tunes with a wide array 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. Colin will be performing with Hauler this year at the Festival as well as in a trio with Mary Beth Carty and Bradley Murphy.
