“Keith creates music from the soul; the instruments he uses to express it
- are all secondary.”
- Andrew Fedora, Crowdis Bridge

Keith Mullins is a singer, songwriter, drummer, and organic farmer whose music speaks to contemporary Cape Breton in a variety of ways. In the tradition of his fellow East Coast songwriters such as cousin Gordie Sampson and PEI singer Lennie Gallant, with whom he has toured, his songs draw on themes of daily life and community. The Cape Breton he represents is rooted, contemporary, and connected to the world, as is evident in the reggae and African rhythms of his often upbeat and pop-tinged songs. With a focus on groove informed by his years touring as a drummer with artists such as Paula Cole and Sarah Slean, Keith's music is often joyful, catchy, and his themes of the simple life inspire hope. 

Keith is a multiple East Coast Music Award winner. His latest album Island Sol was recorded in Cuba, and the sunny title track, co-written with East Coast icon Lennie Gallant, reflects an "islander connection" between his home of Cape Breton and Cuba. Mullins has been forging musical connections to Cuba with annual visits over the last 12 years. Mullins says "The amount of people that play music in Cape Breton, per capita, is just so strong and it's the same way in Cuba...with this album, I'm putting together why I connected with that community and culture so much and it's because it's so familiar to me. It's the same thing I grew up with."

Performing at Harrison with Keith Mullins will be fellow globe trotting Cape Bretonner, guitarist Angelo Spinazzola.
