Caledon County grew out of the accidental musical collaboration of Stephanie and Rory in early 2011.  They were both playing ‘colour licks’ on opposites sides of a nominally Irish band when Rory asked Stephanie if she wanted to work up a couple of pipe tunes on her fiddle with a view to presenting them for play with Gordon’s Acoustic Living Room, a band he had been playing in since 2004.  She enthusiastically agreed and it was a terrific success.  This set off a year of intense work where Stephanie and Rory developed a unique and tight style of playing Scottish pipe music.

Soon a repertoire was developed and memorized and they moved to the idea that they should form their own stand-alone trio with a guitarist filling out the missing spot    In the Fall of 2012 Gaye Zimmerman-Huycke joined the band and the trio called Caledon County came into being.

Caledon County released its first CD in June 2015.

Gaye Zimmerman-Huycke

Gaye Zimmerman-Huycke has been singing for children and adults for forty years and happy to be singing and playing for forty years more. For 15 years she has been honoured to be a part of the big pick-up band Gordon’s Acoustic Living Room as one of their guitar players, singers and song writers, the latter of which she particularly enjoys. Since joining Caledon County, she has been playing rhythm guitar work in the Scottish idiom with great relish.

 Stephanie Miletic

Stephanie Miletic completed her Bachelor of Music – Honors Viola Performance at the University of Western Ontario. While living on the West Coast she performed with the West Coast Symphony and independent artists Christopher Smith and the Beck & Call, and others. Upon moving back to Toronto, she has continued performing both on viola and violin and she is comfortable in both classical and folk idioms.  She has performed with Doug Paisley, Gordon’s Acoustic Living Room, Caledon County, the Irish Band Big Fog as well as the Scarborough Philharmonic Orchestra.

Rory Sinclair

Rory took lessons on the Great Highland Bagpipe as a young boy but he played several other instruments as well, including ukulele, saxophone and guitar. In 1991 Rory took up his pipes again and embarked on 20 years of serious study during which time he competed at Highland Games with some success.  Rory has composed over 20 original pipe tunes and has produced 4 CD’s which contain traditional tunes as well as genres that have never seen pipes: Bob Marley, Chuck Berry, Cajun, Calypso inter alia. Rory feels especially blessed with the enthusiasm Stephanie and Gaye have expressed in their playing of Scottish music.

The musical position of which he is most proud his appointment as Piper to the Earl of Caithness, Hereditary Chief of Clan Sinclair.
