Best Fiddler

Natalie MacMaster

Heck, she’s more than the world’s Celtic darling from little old Troy, Inverness County—she’s your Coast Readers’ Poll pick for Best Fiddler! Pumping away since the tender age of nine and touring almost year-round, MacMaster sees more smiling faces staring at her than the Hope Diamond. During the month of April alone, she’ll visit Alaska, Washington, Montana, Idaho, Oregon, California, Arizona and Wisconsin. She even got to go to the Grammys last year, where she was nominated for Best Traditional Folk Album for My Roots Are Showing. Next stop: uh, more touring. Her new double-disc live album hits May 14.
