March 13th, 2020: Cape Breton Fiddlers Andrea Beaton and Troy MacGillivray
An award-winning fiddler, tune composer and recording artist, Andrea Beaton hails from Cape Breton Canada’s most well known and respected musical families. She will be joined by equally celebrated Nova Scotia musician Troy MacGillivray. Cape Breton music style is enticingly addictive. While Celtic roots are evident, it includes a delightful ragtime-y feel. The energetic hard driving rhythms co-evolved with step dancing embracing the social nature of this special brand of folk music.
Gatherings are family friendly and free, however a $10.00 per person donation would be greatly appreciated. The Stella is Handicapped accessible. Parking is free with exit after 8 PM (take ticket to enter). This month’s Food truck is Bayou Betty featuring authentic Cajun cuisine to warm your soul.
