Brad Reid’s fresh fiddle phrases connect old traditions with modern popular music, while drawing on global influences such as latin percussion, classical, jazz, and hip hop. Nominated for a 2022 East Coast Music Award, and two 2021 Nova Scotia Music Awards, he’s been described as “traditional yet innovative” by Irish Music Magazine, and “a true pleasure” by Fiddler Magazine. Through his arrangements with stimulating new chords, Brad Reid presents a side of the classic Cape Breton sound in a way that might be, according to Irish tradition bearer Martin Hayes, “continually growing”.
