Maggie McKaig, from California's central coast, is a singer/songwriter/ instrumentalist who began playing guitar at age 11. She also plays accordion and piano. Maggie began playing professionally after moving to Calgary, Alberta in 1976. In 1980 she became the lead guitar player and vocalist in Luke Wilson's band Lost in the Colonies. With Lost in the Colonies Maggie toured the Canadian Festival circuit where the band was loved for their eclectic mix of folk, bluegrass, country, and jazz originals. Lost in the Colonies made one recording, the self titled "Lost In The Colonies", which was produced by Don Pennington at the CBC studios in Calgary in 1984. Tiring of Canadian winters, Maggie moved back to Northern California in 1985 with Wilson and their two year old son. Soon after their second son was born, and they moved to Nevada City to settle down and raise the boys. Luke set up shop as a luthier, and Maggie began teaching music and drama. Over the years Maggie and Luke have continued to perform together, as well as separately with various local musicans. In 2001 Maggie was invited by Alasdair Fraser to teach guitar at his Valley of the Moon Fiddle Camp. In 2002 she put together the first incarnation on the Celtic Wonder Band, which performed for a Saint Patrick's Day event produced by Nevada County's reknowned community radio station KVMR. The band has since performed at the past two KVMR Celtic Festivals, including hosting the session stage as well as performing a mainstage concert.
In 2003 Maggie recorded "Grand Promenade", a collection of her original tunes, which Luke produced. She has also written one film score, as well as scores for fifteen plays.
