Darren McMullen

Nova Scotia

Darren McMullen is a highly sought-after multi-instrumentalist whose list of instruments includes mandolin, bouzouki, tenor banjo, whistles, guitar and bass—but he started out on piano as a youngster. Darren played his way through the popular pub band scene until he landed a gig with J.P. Cormier in 2004 which took him throughout Canada, the USA and the UK. Since then he has released three solo albums and been busy touring and performing as a sideman with a wide range of bands including the Rankin family, Matt Andersen, and many Cape Breton fiddlers, but his main gig is with Cape Breton supergroup Còig. Darren will be joining Còig bandmate Rachel Davis onstage at Celtic Colours this year.
