New York, USA – Acclaimed virtuoso fiddler Ashley MacIsaac brings his blistering, Cape-Breton sound back to U.S. shores this May with his new self-titled album, Ashley Macisaac, and an electrifying live concert tour.
MacIsaac’s new album encompasses traditional Celtic-flavored playing and infectious pop/adult songs, while showcasing his dynamic vocal abilities never before realized with previous recordings.
MacIsaac will be playing May 19 at Knitting Factory, Los Angeles, CA; and May 22 at Slim’s, San Francisco, CA. The album is out on the Decca (Universal) label.
