Hailing from Chéticamp, Cape Breton Island’s largest francophone community, Chris Babineau has taken both traditional French and Scottish culture to heart. Since 2010, he has been Ashley MacIsaac’s go-to guitarist, and is in high demand for fiddling accompaniment across Canada. One of his proudest achievements is co-producing and performing on the late Marc Boudreau’s 2012 album, Live at the Doryman. A versatile guitarist who also plays bass, Chris has performed with a long list of Cape Breton fiddlers including Andrea Beaton, Robbie Fraser, Colin Grant, Brent Aucoin, Hailee LeFort, and Douglas Cameron.
