Joe will be joined on piano by Darla MacPhee of the renowned Chaisson family. The two have joined forces before for HERE WE GO Barndances in 2018. The evening will also feature one of PEI’s favourites in the traditional music scene, Thomas Harrington, on fiddle and smallpipes.
Deemed the newest powerhouse of Route 19 by Ashley MacIsaac, Joe MacMaster has quickly risen up the ranks of the Cape Breton music scene in the last number of years. With an arsenal of pipes, fiddle, and piano, Joe has made his mark on the local music scene as a regular player at dances and ceilidhs in and around Cape Breton. He has toured through the United States performing with Natalie MacMaster, brought his music to Ontario on multiple occasions, and has even performed at the Edmonton Folk Festival. Hailing from Troy, Joe is one of younger members of the MacMaster fiddling dynasty. He credits his greatest musical influences as his granduncle Buddy MacMaster, his aunt Natalie MacMaster, Kenneth MacKenzie, and Mac Morin. He is known for his traditional style and repertoire, but is also a composer with several noted tunes in circulation. Joe was a part of Na Gaisgich Òga, and Féis Cape Breton, two programs geared towards developing Gaelic fluency and traditional music skills in youth. Joe currently attends St.F.X. University and works as a blacksmith aside from his music.
