Natalie MacMaster and Donnell Leahy bring their family to yours with A Celtic Family Christmas.
This holiday season you can join these award-winning fiddle virtuosos, in an intimate and unique Christmas concert you will never forget on Sunday, Nov. 25 at the Cowichan Performing Arts Centre starting at 7:30 p.m.
The duo, accompanied by their talented children, share a glimpse into the wonderful world of a true MacMaster Leahy Christmas celebration.
To fans of fiddle music, MacMaster needs no introduction. Over a recording career now spanning 25 years, this Order of Canada recipient has released 11 albums that have notched sales of over 200,000 copies. She has won two Juno and 11 East Coast Music Awards and been nominated for a Grammy, and has collaborated with artists as diverse as Yo-Yo Ma (on the Grammy-winning album Songs of Joy & Peace), Alison Krauss, Jesse Cook, and Bela Fleck.
Leahy is no stranger to the awards podium himself. He was the music leader of the internationally acclaimed family group Leahy, winners of three Juno Awards. Widely recognized as one of the best fiddlers in the world, his high-energy playing style also makes him a highly popular performer.
Not surprisingly, their last Christmas concert sold out. This year, A Celtic Family Christmas will exceed all expectations with riveting performances by this fierce fiddling duo, and their children, bringing the Cape Breton Christmas to you. Through a mix of both song and dance, they will take you on a journey of virtuoso performances, telling the story of the night before Christmas in the Leahy/MacMaster household.
With a lineup of familiar Christmas songs intermingled with classic Celtic songs, A Celtic Family Christmas brings you in the door and welcomes you in as part of the family.
