Hi™ How Are You Today? is an album by Canadian fiddler Ashley MacIsaac, released in 1995 on A&M Records' Ancient Music imprint. MacIsaac's major label debut and his most commercially and critically successful album, it spawned the Canadian Top 40 hit "Sleepy Maggie" featuring Mary Jane Lamond, and won the Juno Award for Roots & Traditional Album of the Year – Solo at the Juno Awards of 1996.

The album was produced by Michael Phillip Wojewoda and Peter Prilesnik. Guest musicians on the album included Lamond, Gordie Johnson, Graeme Kirkland, Ian Blurton, Chin Injeti, Gordie Sampson, Chris Brown and the bands Jale and Quartetto Gelato.

In 2005, the tenth anniversary of the album's release, it was re-released as a special edition, remastered and released with four new remixes of MacIsaac's most famous track, "Sleepy Maggie", along with the music video for the track.
