ALGOMATRAD is excited to announce two Algoma area concerts by a trio of Celtic instrumental wizards at the end of November. Cape Breton fiddler Dan MacDonald, who taught at the AlgomaTrad Camp in ’08 and ’09, is returning to the region to perform with his new group, North Atlantic Drift. North Atlantic Drift, made up of piper Ross Griffiths and tenor banjo/guitar maestro Brian Taheny as well as MacDonald, has just released a self-titled CD. Together they are an entire Celtic orchestra in a trio. In one sitting you’ll hear Cape Breton fiddle, Sligo fiddle, tenor banjo, guitar, mandolin, Irish Uilleann pipes, Scottish Highland and Lowland pipes, whistles and bodhran. Along with this impressive display of multi-instrumental talent is the striking blend of the separate traditions at work from players with deep roots in those traditions.
