The Andrea Beaton Trio
This concert of traditional Celtic music from Cape Breton features Andrea Beaton, piper Dick Hensold, and pianist Tyson Chen. The concert will focus on the musical and cultural interplay between the fiddle and pipes, two instruments that have had a long, close, and mutually influential relationship in Cape Breton.

Andrea Beaton, "a powerful Cape Breton fiddler, composer and stepdancer", is one of the most accomplished and well-known fiddlers from the newest crop of Cape Breton musicians. Andrea's lively music is characterized by her powerful bow, the drive and swing of her timing, and the crispness of her attack. Listening to Andrea's music is overwhelmingly uplifting, and she delights audiences wherever she plays. She learned her tradition from her family. Her father, Kinnon, is one of today's most influential Cape Breton fiddlers; her mother, Betty Beaton, is one of the great piano accompanists of her generation. Her uncle, Buddy MacMaster, is the most revered fiddler on Cape Breton Island, and her cousin, Natalie MacMaster, is an enormously popular entertainer on the fiddle. Her music is at once her own and deeply rooted in the tradition associated with the Mabou Coal Mines in Cape Breton. She has released 5 solo CDs, one of which won the 2010 East Coast Music Association "instrumental recording of the year" award.

Appearing with Andrea will be Dick Hensold, playing various bagpipes and whistles. A 2006 Bush Artist Fellow (in traditional music), he is the leading Northumbrian smallpiper in North America, and for the past 20 years has performed and taught in England, Scotland, Japan, Canada, and across the United States. He has studied Cape Breton music with teachers in Halifax since 2005. His solo Northumbrian smallpipes CD Big Music for Northumbrian Smallpipes was released in 2007.

Joining Andrea and Dick will be Ottawa- and Cape Breton-based pianist Tyson Chen. He studied classical and popular music in Ottawa, where he grew up. In recent years, he has lived and breathed Celtic music in the heart of Cape Breton where he has become a popular piano accompanist among fiddlers. Tyson has played for international festivals, musical theatre, and cruise ships, as well as square dances and ceilidhs.

Cape Breton Island, at the Eastern end of the Canadian maritime province of Nova Scotia, was settled about 200 years ago by some 50,000 Gaelic-speaking Scottish Highlanders. Because of the Highlanders' isolation, Cape Breton is believed to authentically preserve many aspects of 18th-century Highland Scots Gaelic culture, particularly its music and dance.
