Gabrielle MacLellan & Tom Daniels
Fiddler Gabrielle MacLellan and guitarist Tom Daniels have been performing their exciting brand of Celtic music for 8 years. This powerful acoustic duo brings to the stage a dynamic traditional sound with a fresh contemporary flair. Gabrielle grew up in the musical village of Judique and is an accomplished performer and instructor of Cape Breton music and dancing. Tom was born in Labrador and grew up in Corner Brook, Newfoundland. He is a multi-instrumentalist and was Professor of Jazz Studies at St. FX University. As a duo, Gabrielle and Tom weave a style of music that draws strongly from the Cape Breton tradition while incorporating jazz, classical and popular influences in a tasteful and elegant way. They have performed extensively together and were recently featured on CBC Radio's Musicraft. They continue to bring their uplifting music to audiences everywhere and are delighted to be returning to Celtic Colours International Festival again this year!
