ICYMI: Ashley MacIsaac live at Axis Mundi

Canadian fiddler Ashley MacIsaac delivered a thunderous set at Axis Mundi Festival at Revelstoke Mountain Resort on Sunday.

Ashley MacIsaac plays the fiddle like few others at the Axis Mundi Festival at Revelstoke Mountain Resort on Sunday.

It’s been a while since Ashley MacIsaac’s hay-day in the 1990s, when the fiddler from Cape Breton burst onto the Canadian music with the wild Devil in the Kitchen and the haunting Sleep Maggie.

On Sunday, he took the stage twice as part of the Axis Mundi festival. First, he joined Swedish trio Baskery for a set at the Last Drop. The two groups traded songs and played a long with each other.

At night, he headlined the show at Revelstoke Mountain Resort. The show was moved indoors because of safety concerns, making for a more intimate performance, with the crowd pushed up against the stage, dancing to MacIsaac’s mix of classic and contemporary fiddle songs.

Here’s a video of his closer, The Devil in the Kitchen.
