Cynthia MacLeod

From her home base in tiny Prince Edward Island, Canada, fiddling sensation Cynthia MacLeod has built an international reputation that is expanding around the globe.

It’s a reputation founded in raw talent, nurtured by boundless energy, and polished to a gleaming finish by a decade of touring that has taken her across Canada, through New England, and as far away as Japan. Audiences far and wide have thrilled as this tiny dynamo takes the stage for whirlwind performances that garner spring-loaded standing ovations everywhere she performs.

Just as remarkable is the acceptance and respect accorded Cynthia by her peers. In a part of the world known for dazzlingly talented fiddlers, fellow musicians have awarded her more than a dozen Prince Edward Island Music Awards, including multiple awards as Roots/Traditional Artist of the Year and Instrumental Artist of the Year. She has also been chosen by audiences as Entertainer of the Year based on her breathtaking live performances.

Cynthia’s grace and charm with audiences is unchanged whether she is performing at home at her perpetually standing-room-only ceilidhs in Brackley Beach, PEI, or taking the stage in front of thousands at the 2005 World Expo in Aichi, Japan. She is equally comfortable in an intimate workshop in New England, an enormous festival setting in Cape Breton or Goderich, Ontario, or bursting onto the stage to a packed house in St. Albert, Alberta or Whistler, B.C.

Summer of 2010 brought a special distinction: Cynthia was asked to perform on the popular American syndicated TV morning show Regis and Kelly Live!. Millions of viewers around North America saw and heard the Island fiddling sensation as she brought her firebrand form of Island traditional music to a brand new audience.

Her growing fan base across Canada and throughout the New England states knows what to expect from Cynthia: soft-spoken down-home charm, a playful, mature sexiness, and a high-energy, electrifying show with fun, fiddle, and step-dancing, often all three at the same time!
