Fiddler Bradley Reid and pianist Susan MacLean will play for a square dance at the East Bay Fire Hall, Friday, August 14, 2015. 9pm-12am. Admission is $8.
Based in Dartmouth, NS, Reid has family ties to two traditional music cultures – on his father’s side from St. John’s, Newfoundland, and on his mother’s side from East Bay (and Cheticamp), Cape Breton Island. His maternal grandparents (Lefort and MacDonald) instilled in him a love for the traditional Scottish violin music found in Cape Breton, with his grandfather, also a fiddler, as a mentor. They would eventually bring their family to live in Antigonish, NS:
This dance in East Bay will be Reid’s second appearance at the venue, which he hopes to visit more regularly moving forward.
Also a trained saxophonist (St. Francis Xavier University) and woodwind doubler, Reid is active in the Halifax music scene as a freelancer, and a regular player in the orchestra pit at Neptune Theatre.
One of Reid’s current musical projects is Jigs Start Here, which features the traditional fiddle music of Cape Breton and mainland Nova Scotia that has been composed locally, building on the centuries-old repertoire passed on from Scotland, Ireland, and France.
This group recently performed in the Sullivan’s Pond Summer Concert Series in Dartmouth, in a trio setting with Reid being accompanied by guitar wiz Dave MacIsaac and cellist Catherine LIttle.
