Fueled by bold musical imagination, Maukin is a sturdy new folk collective from Prince Edward Island. Their rich compositions and melodies, shaped from the cultural clay of their home province by Rowen Gallant (fiddle) and Nick vanOuwerkerk (Pipes/Whistles), draw from their collective Irish, Scottish and Acadian heritages and are brought to life through genre-defying arrangements and accompaniment by Jesse Périard (Guitar) and Caleb Gallant (Bodhran/Percussion). Previously touring and recording as the highly acclaimed trio Ten Strings and a Goatskin, Périard and the brothers Gallant have joined forces with award-winning piper and whistle player VanOuwerkerk to once again explore the frontiers of Atlantic Canada’s folk traditions.
