MAC is Ryan McKasson, Elias Alexander and Colin Cotter, and they play powerfully energetic traditional Scottish tunes and original songs.  MAC is, at its core, part of the natural progression of Celtic music as it has worked away into the American consciousness.

McKasson, Alexander, and Cotter are all three well-versed in the Celtic music tradition, and the music that they write and perform is steeped heavily in this timeless tradition while calling upon influences ranging from rock to classical.

Their performances reveal fiery personas tempered with artistry, finesse, and virtuosity as they draw from a deep well of innovative original music and lush arrangements of traditional songs and tunes.

Sample some of their music:

Naked in the Creek

Row On

Ryan McKasson – fiddle
Elias Alexander – small pipes, harmonium, vocals
Colin Cotter – guitar, vocals
