Born and raised in Saint John, NB, Mike Hall was raised in a very musical household where visits with musical friends were common. His father, Sean, having strong Acadian roots exposed Michael to traditional music from birth. His interest was noticeable at a young age and today has blossomed into one of the most dynamic fiddlers of his generation. One of Mike's main influences was Alex "Lewis" MacDonald, an Inverness County fiddler who lived in Saint John. Since making Cape Breton his primary home base back in 2001, Mike has been featured on 6 commercial recordings including two of his own; A Legacy not to be Forgotten in 2009 and Mike “Dance” Hall in 2012. He has traveled throughout North America, and in May of 2018 added International exposure to the list by touring with Troy MacGillvray and Marion Dewar in Denmark. Mike is a regular favourite at dance halls, pubs and ceilidhs throughout Cape Breton Island.
