Micah (Toronto, ON) and Delia (Antigonish, NS) met in Halifax, NS where their friendship quickly blossomed over a love of music and performance.
They recently moved to West Coast of Canada from Nova Scotia to play original music. Starting in Calgary, AB they played over a hundred venues making their way to Vancouver, BC. From there, home base became Toronto, ON. After touring the country in their 2001 Acura TL with two dogs for almost two years, Micah and Delia are now back in Nova Scotia.
Their music is a fusion of modern blue grass, old rock n’ roll and 300 year old Scottish and Irish shanties that Canadians from across the country of every age can identify with.
Micah opened the Deep Roots Music Festival in Wolfville, NS. The duo also opened for the internationally renowned celtic/rock band Celtica at the Canmore Highland Games in Alberta.

Named after his grandfather MacFarlane, Mike Milne (lead vocals and guitar) along with Kory Bayer (bass and vocals) and Randy Feener (bodhran) make up this upbeat Celtic trio. MacFarlane’s Rant plays a mixture of traditional Irish, Scottish and Maritime folk music with musical influences such as Stan Rogers, the Dubliners, The Clancy Brothers and the godfather of folk himself, Tommy Makem. They have played some major festivals around the province this past year such as the Lunenburg Folk Harbour Festival, Kempt Shore Acoustic Maritime Music Festival and the Deep Roots Music Festival. Their music will have you singing along, tapping your toes and maybe even up dancing.
