Douglas has been turning heads in the Cape Breton fiddling community in the last ten years--and he's only 20 years old. Trained by dedicated teachers like Bonny Jean MacDonald, Margie, Dawn, and Andrea Beaton, Douglas has absorbed the proud history of the Cape Breton style of Celtic fiddling. Born and raised in the northern Inverness County community of Belle Cote, he has played piano in concerts since the age of five, and fiddle since he was nine. Douglas is a veteran of Celtic Colours and many of the larger square dances in Cape Breton. He released his first CD in 2010. The CD shows Douglas honoring the tradition handed down to him by his teachers and the many great Cape Breton fiddlers who have influenced Cape Breton fiddle playing.
