Dawn, a native of Mabou, Cape Breton came into music naturally. Beginning with dance at age 4, fiddle would soon follow and she hasn’t stopped since. She has learned from fiddlers like Stan Chapman and Fr. Angus Morris, and has taught in both one-on-one and group sessions for over 15 years. Along with her sister Margie, the two are most often seen performing together and also play frequently in a group with Jason Roach on piano and Kenneth MacKenzie on pipes. Dawn works as Artistic Director of the Celtic Colours International Festival.
