Dawn and Margie Beaton, who come from a long line of Celtic musicians, started their musical careers at the age of four, learning step dance from their grandmother. By the time they were five years old, they were playing the Celtic violin.
Coming from a family of fiddlers, dancers, and singers, learning stepdancing and the violin at a young age was a logical development. It's a continuation of that significant culture into vibrant tunes and arrangements as the Beaton Sisters' Band!
"Dawn and Margie have put together a great selection of tunes, which definitely have a taste of Gaelic in each one. Each selection on the album shows their respect for the music and its tradition."
"Dawn and Margie did an outstanding job with A Taste of Gaelic. The sisters have an elegant sense of music style. It's a blast to listen to."
"It's a peach of an album that puts you right in the heart of Cape Breton's musical traditions. It quite deservedly earned them a 2010 East Coast Music Award for roots/traditional group recording."
