Margie Beaton

Cape Breton

Margie Beaton first took an interest in the traditional culture of the area through the means of dance, enrolling in lessons at the age of 4. Always hearing the music and seeing family and friends take part made it seem a natural fit, Margie coming from a long history of musicians, singers, and dancers. Fiddle and piano would come in later years, each fostering new appreciation and skill in the other. Partnered most often with sister Dawn, the two redheads from Mabou have been dancing, playing, learning and teaching ever since, fortunate to perform and instruct both locally and internationally. Now, combining her studies and love for the culture, Margie handles school and marketing at the Gaelic College.
