Andrea Beaton, Dick Hensold & Dean Magraw


Come hear Andrea Beaton, a powerful Cape Breton fiddler, composer, and stepdancer from Montréal, Quebec, who will be making her debut in our series, along with Dick Hensold, who has been the leading Northumbrian smallpiper in North America for the past 20 years. Dick will play Northumbrian smallpipes, reel pipes, and whistles.

They will be joined by Dean Magraw, a versatile guitarist and virtuoso in many styles of music, rounding out a wonderful ensemble that focuses on the musical and cultural interplay between the fiddle and the pipes, two instruments that have had a long, close, and mutually influential relationship in Cape Breton, Canada.
