Coming off a sold-out concert in Lunenburg, Nova Scotia in September, a rejuvenated and energized Ashely MacIsaac is set to launch his “Maritime Tour ‘21” at the deCoste Performing Arts Centre in Pictou.
For the 1st time ever, Ashley will invite his sister, Lisa MacIsaac from the Juno nominated singer-songwriting duo, Madison Violet to the stage at the deCoste Performing Arts Centre and for his entire Maritime Tour. Long-time friend Hilda Chiasson will be joining Ashely and Lisa and bringing her superb musicianship and beautiful arrangements to the performance!
A renowned fiddle player, piano player, and step dancer, Ashley MacIsaac has performed in the opening ceremonies at the Vancouver 2010 Winter Olympics to a worldwide audience and with artists such as Phillip Glass and The Chieftains. Ashley also played with The White Stripes for their “Under Great White Northern Lights” Canadian tour which was turned into a documentary. So impressed by Ashley’s electric performance and love of bending genres, Jack White has invited him to co-write and perform with him on a country blues song for Jack’s new label based in Nashville.
