In rural Nova Scotia, there are many musicians and there
are those who stand out because they leave a legacy of
music that is enjoyed for years to come. Donald Angus
Beaton was one of those; a musician and a composer who
shared his music with a great number of people. He was a
robust and determined man who raised sons and daughters
who are also musicians and dancers and his music is very
often played by traditional and contemporary musicians
who appreciate the style of his tunes.
Recipient of the Stompin' Tom award, presented by the
East Coast Music Association, 2009.
