Most people would never expect the Canadian prairies to produce a Cape Breton fiddler. Meet Scott Benson. The native of Moose Jaw, Saskatchewan has hit stages from coast to coast alongside many of Cape Breton's finest traditional players. A descendant of Cape Breton's musically rich Stubbert family, Scott picked up the fiddle at the age of five. From an early age, he immersed himself in recordings of Cape Breton fiddlers, learning hundreds of tunes, and developing a style all his own. Now 26, Scott has transplanted the Cape Breton tradition in the prairies of Saskatchewan and beyond.
Scott's debut album, Point Aconi, was recorded with award-winning producer Michael Shepherd at Cape Breton's Lakewind Sound. The album features internationally acclaimed supporting artists Troy MacGillivray on piano and fiddle, and Patrick Gillis on guitar. Brenda Stubbert and Andrea Beaton also make guest appearances.
