Leanne Aucoin!!

I have very talented friends! LOL

"A native of Sydney Mines, Cape Breton, Leanne Aucoin began playing music at an early age. As a child, Leanne received lessons from wonderful teachers in her community and also attended the summer sessions at the Gaelic College in St. Ann's, Cape Breton. She is now an instructor at the college during the summer months teaching fiddle, Cape Breton piano accompaniment, and step dancing. She is currently teaching music lessons and is employed with the Cape Breton-Victoria Regional School Board as a substitute music teacher. She continues to perform at various venues in Cape Breton and has also performed in other parts of the Maritimes, the US and Ireland. In late 2006, Leanne released her debut album, All Set, a traditional album featuring Tracey Dares MacNeil and Dave MacIsaac and also members of her family."

What a sweetheart she is! When Jesse told us she had put out a CD, I couldn't wait to get one! I love to put it in my cd player and listen to it while I sketch. The emotion that she can bring out with her music is spellbinding. I find myself escaping thru her music often.

Here is a link so that you too can have her fiddle sing to your soul!
