Steeped in the rich musical traditions of Cape Breton and Newfoundland, Dwayne Côté and Duane Andrews twist their inimitable blend of East Coast Celtic and Roots music with strands of Gypsy and Jazz sounds.

Heavily influenced by the brilliance of Gypsy Jazz legend Django Reinhardt, multi ECMA award winning guitarist Andrews has literally brought his music around the world from his home in Newfoundland to Tasmania, Australia with stops in between.

Côté is deemed to be one of the most unique violinists and fiddlers in Atlantic Canada. He uses a distinct classical tone that has developed both through professional exposure and his own self-education, yet his style rings true to the traditions of his native Cape Breton.

Skye Theater is located three miles west of East Dixfield village at 2 Highland Drive off Winter Hill Road and U.S. Route 2 in South Carthage. UCCPA is at 42 Depot Street in Unity.

Ticket price is $15 at the door. For reservations call Skye Theatre at 562-4445 or UCCPA at 948-7469. Reservations are strongly suggested at both venues.
