Mairi Rankin (Fiddle)
 

One of the hugely influential Rankin Family – legends on the Canadian music scene – Mairi plays fiddle, sings and also step-dances up a storm. Born in Mabou, Nova Scotia, she has been influenced by some of the best Cape Breton traditional musicians and instructors on the island.

Mairi has developed her own unique style by being immersed in such a rich musical culture. She has toured nationally and internationally as a solo artist, a sideman and is a member of the Cape Breton Celtic super group Beolach and currently tours with The Outside Track.
