Natalie MacMaster & Donnell Leahy: A Celtic Family Christmas

Cowichan Performing Arts Centre and Gee Dan Productions present

Fiery fiddle-playing duo Natalie MacMaster and Donnell Leahy, with their talented children, present a heart-warming evening of Christmas classics and Cape Breton folk music. The husband and wife duo are decorated with JUNO and East Coast Music awards spanning over their long music careers.

One of Cape Breton, Nova Scotia’s most important exports and a superstar in the Celtic music world, fiddler and step-dancer, Natalie MacMaster, has built a sterling, multi-decade career on electrifying playing and must-see live performances. Her extensive discography showcases MacMaster as both a soloist and a marquee collaborator, notably with her husband, Donnell Leahy. An Order of Canada is one among Natalie’s many accolades.

Donnell Leahy has dedicated his life to performing as a solo artist, with his 10 siblings in the acclaimed band, Leahy, and with his wife, Natalie. Donnell has cemented his reputation as a peerless instrumentalist able to synthesize traditional influence with more contemporary Celtic/folk sensitivities. His Irish/Cape Breton lineage always weaves its way into his unique musical style.
