Ben Miller & Anita MacDonald have become renowned across Canada and further afield, for their synergistic approach to traditional Scottish music. Blending Scottish Lowland pipes with Cape Breton fiddle, Gaelic song and step-dance, Ben and Anita join together the threads of Old and New World traditions, while constantly exploring new ways to bring their instruments closer together. Their music has been hailed as “Playful, poignant, and passionate all at once” — “Fresh, yet totally traditional.”
As well as performing as a duo, Ben and Anita tour as a trio with their latest project, Miller – MacDonald – Cormier. This project formed as a collaboration with Zakk Cormier, an Acadian multi-instrumentalist from Prince Edward Island. A dynamic musician with deep roots in his own Franco-Celtic tradition, Zakk brings his talents as a sympathetic guitar accompanist, as well as the driving rhythms of Acadian foot-percussion.
With their new album, “South Haven“, this trio has created a powerful sound, transcending the boundaries between Cape Breton, Scottish, and Acadian traditions. Their live show has captivated audiences across the globe, from British Columbia and California, to Austria and Denmark.
