"Cape Breton's answer to John Prine."” - Steve White

AARON MACDONALD

Cape Breton Singer Songwriter

Aaron has been known to East Coast audiences for a long time and it’s been far too long since they’ve seen the man wave his wand with words. This new music offers a glimpse into the life of the seasoned songwriter.

Aaron has built a strong following on the East Coast as well as attracting fans across Canada with his alt-country sound. His music comes across as something between the rhythmic soul of a Nathaniel Rateliff mixed with the superb simplicity of a John Prine.
