Troy MacGillivray

You could say it’s in his DNA.

Audiences around the world have been captivated by the flying fingers and energetic pace of this multiple award winner and if you’re lucky, you just might get a little step or two out of him! From a young age, he impressed audiences with his fiddle, piano and step dancing skills. Troy’s roots-centered approach to playing has the power to inspire any audience.
