Kinnon Beaton comes from a long line of fiddlers from the Mabou area. His playing, like that of his late father Donald Angus is rich in the Mabou Coal Mines flavour. Beaton is very much in demand at dances and concerts from Cape Breton to Boston and every place in between. Beaton is a prolific composer as his fiddle tunes can be found on numerous Cape Breton fiddle recordings including his own. Kinnon composed a tune for Broad Cove in recognition of our 50th anniversary concert.
