Natalie MacMaster & Donnell Leahy, A Celtic Family Christmas


Tue Dec 19 2023


7:30 pm

The holidays truly become a family affair when married duo Natalie MacMaster and Donnell Leahy—two of the globe’s best and brightest fiddle players—invite their children onstage for an unforgettable night of holiday fun.

MacMaster and Leahy were both fiddle stars in their own right before marrying in 2002. Since then they have recorded multiple albums and have grown their ambitions to include touring the world and performing with their seven children.

Though MacMaster and Leahy followed different trajectories to this point—she a Cape Breton native who could step-dance before she could walk, he the oldest brother of the acclaimed family group Leahy—both have confidently crested the traditional music peak.

Their synergy was brilliantly showcased on the pair’s first recorded collaboration, 2015’s Bob Ezrin produced album One, a crowning achievement complementing combined album sales of over one million, a CV listing cellist Yo-Yo Ma, bluegrass star Alison Krauss, and banjo ace Béla Fleck as past collaborators (and Shania Twain and The Chieftains as fans), plus a devoted audience stretching from Sydney, Nova Scotia to Sydney, Australia.

The event is finished.
