Ashley Macisaac along with Quinn Bachhand closes the show at the Toronto Pride 2010 Pride Gala Awards and Dinner. Ashley was, extremely well welcomed by hundreds of guests and and friends.

He's a great Canadian performer, and the house loved him!

My Camera rig, was 'bouncing' on the floor!

He's, nutty, crazy and zany... but are'nt we all?

A great performance....

Ashley is a hot fiddler as is his cousin, Natalie MacMaster. They are a niece and nephew of, the Master, Buddy Mac Master. They bring to us some of the best fiddle music in the world. Thank you so much for keeping our heritage and culture alive. You are at the top of the peak, although it is is crowded with other greats like your uncle Buddy, Winston Scotty Fitzgerald, and a few hundred (maybe 1, 000's) others.

I watched this man shred MULTIPLE bows at a show several years ago in Minneapolis. This was after we sat together at our table in club and shared a libation! Great guy and such a joy and pleasure to experience!

Ashley (in my opinion), is magic!   I saw him live a few years back,  and he was so awesome!  :)

Ashley and his style got me into Celtic music.     Sure there are world class violinists out there - but not in bars.   This is fiddle music, and no pub wants a 'violinist' on the east coast, simply because they cannot command a roomful of rowdy drunks on their side.    He always puts on a great show.     In a case of bluecollar vs whitecollar, I have a lot of respect for people who don't walk with their nose high and actually want to entertain (working class) people who want to let loose and get wild on the town.     I would think a symphony player in a bar setting would be the one who some guy named Bubba is literally using to mop the beer soaked floors with.   He's also very active toward equal rights in the LGBT community as well as the homeless.      Keep doing just what you're doing Ashley, and great work at the Olde Triangle before Christmas!

Your more than welcome! If you'd like a DVD of the really high-quality footage, send me a e-mail and we can make arrangements for that. The footage I shot is much better than what the Internet allows for.

He is in fact part of that family. I still can't remember the name though. I'd be happy to change all the videos 'tags', if you provide his name.

Excellent! I think it would be nice to give some recognition to the guitarist -- is that one of the Blanchards? I'm not sure who it is but he did a magnificent job as well!!!
