Dawn & Margie Beaton

Dawn and Margie Beaton from Mabou, were dancing at age four and started playing the fiddle a year later. Over the years they have performed at concerts, ceilidhs and festivals all around Cape Breton Island, mainland Nova Scotia, Prince Edward Island, Scotland, Ireland, France, USA, England, Brazil and China. They have been featured internationally on television, radio and video and have performed in numerous Celtic Colours shows over the years. In 2008, Dawn and Margie were chosen as recipients of the Frank “Big Sampie” Sampson Award, given by the Celtic Colours Volunteer Drive’er Association to up-and-coming performers to help them record their first CD. Taste of Gaelic, a unique and traditional album that combines both traditional tunes and tunes composed by Dawn and Margie themselves, went on to win the 2010 East Coast Music Award in the category of Roots/Traditional Album of the Year for Group/Duo. Both Margie and Dawn are now part of an eight-piece dance troupe called Fileanta who they perform with regularly. If not playing or dancing, they are active within the cultural industries just the same. Dawn is the Artistic Director of Celtic Colours while Margie is the Marketing Director for Colaisde Na Gàidhlig in St. Ann’s, Cape Breton. They continue to perform, teach and contribute to the Island’s culture.

Lisa Cameron

Lisa Cameron was raised among a musical family in Margaree Forks. She has released three albums of original songs: End of Blue, Through the Winter and her latest from 2014, Unspoken. For the past couple of years, Lisa has been playing local venues along with her husband, Vern MacDougall and she continues to write and collaborate with a small group of Cape Breton songwriters. When you listen to Lisa, you can actually hear where her musical influence and inspiration comes from. Her voice sails over, under, and straight through melodies reminiscent of Nanci Griffith, James Taylor, and Emmylou Harris. You are immediately put at ease by her dulcet, melodic toning and creative arrangements. Lisa’s ability to engage her audience, highlights her charming and intimate performance style.
