  • Description:

    MAC is, at its core, part of the natural progression of Celtic music as it has worked its way  into the American consciousness. McKasson, Alexander, and Cotter are well-versed in the Celtic music tradition, and the music that they write and perform is steeped heavily in this timeless tradition while calling upon influences ranging from rock to classical. Their performances reveal fiery personas tempered with artistry, finesse, and virtuosity as they draw from a deep well of innovative original music and lush arrangements of traditional songs and tunes.

He is also in demand as a recording artist, appearing on two of Hanneke Cassel's albums as well as on Alasdair Fraser & Natalie Haas' album, "Highlander's Farewell." 

    Elias is a multi-instrumentalist and singer, originally from Ashland, Oregon, now living in Boston. He tours nationally and internationally with several projects, and has performed with greats such as Carlos Nuñez, Alasdair Fraser, and Gillebrìde MacMillan.

    Colin is a guitarist, fiddler, singer, and songwriter who has toured internationally as the front man in bands and as a guitar accompanist to traditional fiddlers of varying backgrounds.
