She has performed and toured with Riverdance’s Heartbeat of Home, Sting’s Broadway musical “The Last Ship”, Cherish the Ladies, The Alt, Mick Moloney and the Green Fields of America, Michael Londra & Celtic Fire, Trinity Dance Company, and the Cathie Ryan Band, among many others. Caitlin is the co-founder of Tune Supply, the online traditional music platform. Caitlin performs, records, and teaches extensively in a variety of genres, and occasionally returns to her roots as a classical violinist. Caitlin holds honors from the National Foundation for the Advancement of the Arts, the National Suzuki Conference, the New England Fiddle Championship, and the Fleadh Cheoil, and she is on the faculty at Manhattan’s Irish Arts Center, the Fairbanks Summer Arts Festival, and the Far North Fiddle Festival.

Troy MacGillivray is from Lanark, a small community on the north-eastern shore of Nova Scotia. Troy’s
commitment to music has spanned 30 years and includes both practical and academic
accomplishments – most recently an M.A. in Ethnomusicology from the University of Limerick in Ireland. From as young as six years old, Troy was impressing audiences step dancing and soon after, fiddle and piano skills. His first teaching gig was at 13 years old at the Gaelic College in St. Ann’s, Cape Breton. His roots-centered approach comes from a family of proud Scottish heritage where fiddle playing and Gaelic traditions runs in the bloodline. In 2012, Troy was awarded the Queen Elizabeth II Diamond Jubilee medal for contributions to culture in Canada. Troy’s strong career has brought him around the world playing and teaching from the North Pole to Afghanistan. His solo recordings have received numerous nominations and awards from East Coast Music Awards and the Canadian Folk Music Awards.
