Donna-Marie DeWolfe

Cape Breton

  • Online:

Donna-Marie DeWolfe, of River Tillard near St. Peter’s in Richmond County, has been playing Cape Breton fiddle music since she was ten years old and comes from a line of musicians on both sides of her family. Her great-grandfather on her father’s side was a fiddler, while her grandfather on her mother’s side was both a fiddler and a fiddle maker. As a child, Donna-Marie heard plenty of fiddle music in her home. Her father is a Cape Breton traditional music lover and he always had fiddle music playing in the house. At the age of 18, she has already become very active in the Cape Breton music scene and plays for ceilidhs and dances around the island. Donna-Martie was the in-house fiddler at the Celtic Music Interpretive Centre this past Summer where she entertained audiences from around the world. Donna-Marie lists Shelly Campbell as a big influence on her playing and also likes to listen to tunes by Donald Angus Beaton, John Morris Rankin, and Kinnon Beaton.
