“A seriously swinging Cape Breton Fiddler. Some things just seem predetermined, inevitable, unavoidable. And so it is with the chosen vocation of one Chrissy Crowley. Born into a large family steeped in the ways of Celtic music, this unfeasibly young fiddler has taken on the twin mantels of both protecting and promoting the sounds of her native Cape Breton Island in Nova Scotia, the region where Celtic music prospers thanks to the Scottish, Irish and French-Acadian backgrounds of its residents. It’s when she picks up her fiddle that she undertakes the true ambassadorial role, the sound of Cape Breton history emerging with every thrust of her bow. While technically flawless, Chrissy’s playing also swings along with a sense of youthful mischief, while her natural curiosity will surely see her expanding the Cape Breton tradition in years to come. For now though, give your ears and heart over to a spellbindingly precocious talent.” Nige Tassell The Guardian (UK) 2012

“As a fiddler with a firm foundation in the traditional music of Cape Breton and the irrepressible curiosity of an artist driven to create and discover, Chrissy Crowley is now bringing her music to world audiences. Rapidly gaining a fearsome reputation among the cognoscenti of Celtic fiddling, her playing is fiery and has a distinctly mischievous personality.” Tim Readman, Penguin Eggs Magazine, August 2007

“Chrissy Crowley doesn’t just set the stage on fire; she sets it ablaze. Crowley has it all as she demonstrated to a full house of wet music lovers at Celtic Colours on Friday night. She has the talent, energy to burn, her own sound, she writes her own powerful tunes, she’s beautiful, funny, great with the audience and blows the roof off of every venue she plays. It wouldn’t be a leap to say that Ms. Crowley will be the next international superstar of the Cape Breton fiddle, following in the steps of “old-timers” Natalie MacMaster and Ashley MacIsaac.” Rankin MacDonald, Inverness Oran, 2012
