Ashley MacIsaac

Ashley MacIsaac was born in Creignish, on the western side of Cape Breton, and now lives in Windsor, Ontario.  By the time he started school, he was performing as a dancer in concerts, graduating to fiddle and piano a short time later.  Before he graduated high school, he was playing across North America, including playing and dancing in a Phillip Glass off-Broadway production.  Over the years, he has experimented with musical styles, evolving into an award-winning genre bending performer, writer, and singer who has toured and performed for sellout crowds around the world, including the 2010 Winter Olympic opening ceremonies.
