Rachel Davis

Cape Breton

Rachel is a fiddler from Baddeck Cape Breton. She picked up the fiddle when she was 12, first taking lessons from her grandfather, Clarence Long. She continued on to learn from Karen Beaton, and also from Stan Chapman and Kyle MacNeil through her studies at Cape Breton University, where she is a recent graduate. Rachel has performed at many ceilidhs, concerts, and festivals throughout Cape Breton, mainland Nova Scotia, New Brunswick and PEI, and the Eastern United States. During the 2007 Celtic Colours International Festival, she was presented with the Tic Butler Memorial Award, for outstanding contribution to Cape Breton culture. Rachel was chosen as the 2009 recipient of the Frank "Big Sampy" Sampson award, given by the Festival Volunteer Drive'er Association and Lakewind Sound Studios, sponsoring an up-and-coming Cape Breton musician to make their first recording.
