A native of Chéticamp where she played for dances and recorded since she was a teenager, Hilda is also a very good step dancer and has played and recorded with a who’s who of Cape Breton fiddlers including Winston ‘Scotty’ Fitzgerald, Donald Angus Beaton, Jerry Holland, Carl MacKenzie and J.P. Cormier. Hilda has performed throughout Canada, the USA, Scotland, Ireland and Denmark as well as in Dubai, Bahrain, and Afghanistan.
