Ashley MacIsaac has garnered international acclaim by playing the fiddle in that hard-nosed, traditional Cape-Breton style, while adding his own spin, mixing genres to appeal to a broader audience. Ashley broke through to the mainstream with the genre-bending hi™ how are you today? in 1995. International radio play for the single, “Sleepy Maggie,” and a regular slot on MuchMusic, made Ashley an instant Canadian icon. In 2016 Ashley and Jay Andrews/Shreem (performing at Stanfest this year!) created a new project called FDLER – channeling dance, electronic, celtic pop and more.
