Keltic Drive

Keltic Drive will take you on a musical and visual journey giving its audience a glimpse at what it’s like to have been brought up in such a vast musical community. You’ll hear songs from our greatest songwriters, tributes to our biggest singers, traditional fiddle tunes from well-known fiddlers, and even a step or two. All performed with a backdrop of picturesque scenes from our beautiful Island. Keltic Drive is made up of some of the busiest and most talented musicians that Cape Breton has to offer.

Kimberley Fraser, a graduate of The Berklee College of Music, is regarded as one of the stellar players of the Cape Breton fiddle tradition. A winner of the East Coast Music Award for best Roots/Traditional Album of the Year, Kimberley remains one of the busiest musicians and teachers on the island.

Lyndon MacKenzie is an artist who comes from a long line of well-known traditional players. To say this guy is versatile is an understatement. He can pick out a Celtic tune with the best of them yet can play everything from country to rock with ease.

Emily Dingwall is a Cape Breton-based musician who is often sought out for her smooth harmonies, soulful bass additions and her chameleon-like ability to blend into any musical situation. This has made Emily the most sought-after bass player in Nova Scotia.

Aaron Lewis is a member of the Canadian Irish group The Carlton Show Band. He also has his own solo country career which has spawned 6 national singles on Country Radio. In the studio, Aaron has contributed his musical talents to over 150 CD projects as both a musician and a background vocalist. He has also produced over 15 recording projects for other artists. Little House Of Faith Productions.
