Joanne Garton

Joanne started listening to bagpipes regularly at age 6 when she began highland dance classes at her local studio in Ottawa, Ontario. The fascination with, and connection to, Scottish and Irish music grew through fiddle music, traditional song, Cape Breton step dancing, and ultimately, dance band gigs for Scottish, English, and contra dance events. Joanne lives and works in Montpelier, Vermont, and, pre-pandemic, could frequently be seen on having fun on the dance floor when not performing or teaching.
