Brad Reid’s boot stomps as his fiddle sounds its Cape Breton heritage. It’s a high-top leather boot he bought touring Russia with Cirque de Soleil playing clarinet, sax, and guitar — while skating. Reid thought he’d landed his dream job — good pay, challenging music, travelling the world. 
 Yet after shows, he searched every town for fiddle jam sessions. Despite language, cultural, and stylistic differences, Reid always found a sense of “home” when playing the fiddle — connecting deeply with other musicians, audiences, and his own creativity in ways other instruments didn’t allow. And so Brad Reid decided to tell his own musical stories, built on a foundation of Cape Breton fiddle and a suitcase full of musical influences from across the world.
