Fiddler Ed Pearlman is joined on stage by his son Neil, on piano.

Ed Pearlman has specialized in performing and teaching fiddle music since the 1980s, focusing especially on Scottish and Cape Breton styles, but also playing a variety of others, including American contradance music, Irish, bluegrass, jazz, Hungarian, Quebecois, and klezmer.

Neil is a multi-instrumentalist, step dancer and host of the podcast TradCafe. Neil is recognized in many Celtic music circles for his unique approach to the piano. Rooted in traditional Cape Breton piano styles, he adds jazz harmony and the syncopations of funk, Cuban, and Brazilian dance music to create a unique and infectious sound.
