Patrick Gillis

From Scotsville, Cape Breton, he grew up with traditional music being played almost constantly in his home. His father, uncle, and two older brothers playing the fiddle gave him a great appreciation and understanding of Celtic music. Patrick has toured the States with Cullin, appeared in Howie MacDonald’s Celtic Brew, played with Ashley MacIsaac, Natalie MacMaster, and Glenn Graham, and has performed in festivals throughout the U.S, Canada and Europe with Beòlach. He has played on many recordings including two Beòlach albums.
