Fiddler Ashley MacIsaac, right, and partner Andrew Stokes seal it with a kiss in Halifax on Saturday.


Renegade fiddler Ashley MacIsaac is a married man.

MacIsaac married Andrew Stokes on stage at the Cape Breton Rocks showcase of the East Coast Music Awards.

A spokesperson for the awards show confirmed yesterday that the wedding took place at a Halifax hotel.

MacIsaac and Stokes were pictured on the front page of the Halifax Daily News yesterday kissing before the wedding took place sometime after midnight.

MacIsaac, 31, broke into the music scene in the 1990s with his own unique brand of hard-driving Celtic punk music.

He was scheduled to perform at last night’s ECMA awards in Halifax in a tribute to Nova Scotia musicians John Allan Cameron and Dutch Mason, who died last year.
