Bill and brother John Pellerin were born and raised in Antigonish, Nova Scotia, and often seen performing together. Bill started dancing at six years of age and John at four. They were instructed by Margaret Dunn, the late Rev. Angus MacDonnell, Ellen MacPherson and Gary (MacPherson) Fiddler. Bill and John acquired a great wealth of music through family. Their father Kenneth is a fiddle player who has played for dances for years in the Antigonish area. Their roots go deep in Cape Breton tradition as well. Their grandmother on their mother’s side is a Beaton from the Mabou Coal Mines. Dancing and fiddling has brought both Bill and John throughout Canada, USA and Ireland. Both have had the opportunity to demonstrate fiddle and dance alongside Buddy MacMaster, Winnie Chafe, the late John Morris Rankin, Natalie MacMaster, and Ashley MacIsaac, among others.
