Biography

Ashley Dwayne MacIsaac (born February 24, 1975) is a professional fiddler born in Creignish, Nova Scotia.

While MacIsaac’s fiddle-playing is entirely traditional, he sets it in contemporary rock songs with hip hop and dance elements.

His greatest mainstream success in Canada was his 1995 album Hi™ How Are You Today?, featuring the hit single “Sleepy Maggie,” with vocals in Gaelic by Mary Jane Lamond.

    Love Ashley... Saw him live at a music festival in NYC (at least 10 yrs ago or more) and he was amazing! So much raw energy and passion! If you ever get the chance to see him don't miss it... he's a force of nature!!! And Katell Keineg was awesome too!!!

    could someone recommend me a band/musician like Ashley but with less singing and more bagpipes, drums and flute?

    @BostonIrish Oddly, being a fiddle player growing up in Cape Breton earns you more respect.

    Read about his participation in the opening ceremonies back in the summer, then totally forgot about it until he came on. Great performance, though~!
