Saturday Night All Star Concert Headliner
North Atlantic Drift with the legendary Celtic banjoist Brain Taheny
The band's name, North Atlantic Drift, perfectly reflects their style. The North Atlantic Drift refers to the current that runs between the East Coast of Canada and the West coast of Europe and Ireland. Therefore, their music features musical styles between Ireland, Scotland and the East coast of Canada. Brian Taheny from Sligo, Ireland, Dan MacDonald from Cape Breton Island and Ross Griffiths from Ontario. The band demonstrates the well established collaboration between nations along the North Atlantic Drift and the product is a multi-instrumental, multi-styled Celtic sound that is truly Canadian in its diversity!
