RealTracks Artist Bio: Troy MacGillivray
Nova Scotia's Troy MacGillivray comes from a long line of Gaelic musicians, and he has kept the tradition alive as an accomplished fiddler, pianist, and step dancer with a growing international following.
Troy first gained recognition for his step dancing, before blossoming as a piano player in his early teens and then picking up the violin enroute to earning a music degree from St. Francis Xavier University.
Today Troy is an award-winning artist with a growing catalogue of award-winning fiddle and piano CDs (11 and counting), which might also feature him on viola and bass. His awards include Canada's East Coast Music Award for "Instrumental Recording of the Year" and the "Auleen Theriault Young Tradition Award" for Celtic roots musicians. Although he is perhaps best known as a fiddler, Troy still considers the piano his first instrument.
While touring internationally to Scotland, Barbados and across North America, Troy has also found time to publish a music book and his own teaching CD for Traditional/Celtic fiddle while completing a college degree in recording engineering.
