Buddy's career as a singer, song-writer, entertainer, began thirty years ago. Born and brought up on the Northern Shores of Cape Breton Island, he was exposed at an early age to the singing and story telling of some of the great Celtic singers of his native Island. Much of his song-writing is still influenced by this style he was so familiar with as a young boy. Over the years he has traveled and entertained audiences throughout Canada, the United States, Germany, Scotland and the Scandinavian countries, performing as a solo act and in different combinations with other musicians from Cape Breton. Whether in a small country hall, pub, festival or concert theater, his love of writing, singing and entertaining comes across to bridge the gap between performer and listener.
