Chrissy Crowley

Fiddle

As a Canadian fiddler with a firm foundation in the traditional music of Cape Breton and the irrepressible curiosity of an artist driven to create and discover, Chrissy Crowley is now bringing her music worldwide, performing throughout Canada, the United States, as well as Ireland, Scotland, Cuba, and the Dominican Republic, captivating audiences with a talent that belies her youth. Chrissy’s new release, the second recording for the 20-year-old artist, is aptly named “The Departure”.   Chrissy’s passion for the music of her Gaelic ancestors is born of destiny. She is the granddaughter of fiddlers Bill Crowley and Archie Neil Chisholm and her large extended family has always greatly valued the traditions of their Scottish forebears and their Newfoundland/Irish ancestors. Paralleling the efforts of her late grandfather Archie Neil, a writer and broadcaster revered throughout the island as a life long proponent of the Cape Breton musical culture, Chrissy has involved herself with the promotion of the folk tradition as a freelance writer. Her articles about her Celtic heritage and musical journey have been published in Celtic Heritage Magazine, Fiddler Magazine and Celtic Life Magazine.
