This father-son duo will envelop you with powerful tunes from Scotland and Cape Breton. Ed's rich and expressive fiddling taps deep into tradition, while Neil’s piano playing weaves an astonishing tapestry of innovative harmony and rhythm.
Based in Boston and Maine, Ed has been a pillar of the American Scottish music scene for over 30 years. He has performed and taught throughout the USA, in Canada and in Scotland, working with almost every major name in Scottish and Cape Breton music.
Neil grew up with this legacy and has infused it with jazz, Latin, and pipe band rhythms – an expression of America, the crossroads of cultures. Neil tours and teaches in his own right, in the USA, Canada, Scotland and Galicia.
Together they represent the flow of tradition from one generation to the next, playing music that speaks to us all.
