Colin Grant Comes to Play

Posted: April 27, 2011

Colin GrantIt’s a very rare thing to find Colin Grant without a fiddle in his hand.  Whether it’s accompanying in performance, backing up in studio or fronting for his band – Colin Grant’s talents are in demand.  Just so we’re clear ECMA 2011 was no exception, but somehow or other we managed the near impossible – catching Colin at the post award show party for a bit of chat.

We talked music and ‘must do’s’ when you’re in the place he calls home - Cape Breton, NS.    It was brief, but beautiful and then he was off to play again.  On tour now with dates in New England and then back to the Maritimes for shows with the Colin Grant Band including Music Shapes New Glasgow…and on and on he goes.

His twitter account @ColinsFiddle reads “Colin Grant's fiddle goes everywhere he goes and knows way more about him than even he does.”  That’s true for sure…but we’d like to think we learned a little bit more about the musician and the man thanks to our time together… at the very least we can confirm – he gives great hugs!
