But that was before Ashley MacIsaac," says the CBC. This unpredictable and wildly creative fiddler, a close cousin to Natalie MacMaster and a more distant one to Jack White, is at home anywhere from the rocky towns of his native Cape Breton Island to the Acropolis in Greece, where he performed a new work by minimalist composer Philip Glass at the 2004 Olympic Games.
