With a hard driving fiddle style and an infectiously joyful stage presence, Cape Breton fiddler Rachel Davis is quickly moving to the forefront of the traditional music scene in Atlantic Canada. Born and raised in Baddeck, Cape Breton, Rachel feels as comfortable on a festival or concert stage as she does in a dance hall back home. She has brought her music to venues around the world, including across Canada, the United States, England, Scotland, France, and Australia. First learning the fiddle from her grandfather, Clarence Long, she fondly recalls sitting in a corner of his barbershop, squeaking away at tunes under his careful guidance. Her musical roots run deep, which becomes very apparent from her obvious joy that she exudes on stage, and has earned her a reputation as one of the best Cape Breton style fiddlers on the go.

Welcome to the new website! 

Good day there, and welcome to my newly revamped website! I'll be doing lots of running around this coming summer, so take a run over to the Shows page and see where I'll be heading. I'll be doing lots of traveling as well with my band Còig, and if you'd like to see what shenanigans we're getting up to, head to www.coig.ca.

Hope to see you on the road soon!
