Combining the fiery edge of the Scottish Border pipes with the rich sounds of the Cape Breton fiddle, Ben Miller and Anita MacDonald join together, merging traditional influences from Cape Breton and Prince Edward Island, as well as the Highlands and Islands of Scotland. This fresh and talented duo pairs driving dance-tunes with expressive Gaelic airs and songs, bringing their listeners a powerful combination of passion and grace.

This new and exciting duo emerged after a chance meeting at the Celtic Colours Festival in 2013. Anita then joined Ben for his debut recording project, an EP titled “On Home Ground”, which was released only a few months later in January 2014. The EP has been met with rave reviews, called: “Fresh, yet totally traditional”, as well as “Excellent entertainment” – giving listeners a real taste of things to come.

Tempering the sharp edge of the pipes and fiddle, Ben and Anita are joined by friends from the Maritimes and beyond. They perform regularly as a trio, with subtle and sympathetic rhythm guitar, or as a quartet, blending in the lush, ethereal sounds of the Scottish harp, or the driving groove of Cape Breton-style piano accompaniment.
