Canada’s Queen of the Fiddle coming to Cranbrook
One of Cape Breton, Nova Scotia’s most important exports and a superstar in the Celtic music world, fiddler and step-dancer Natalie MacMaster will be bringing her remarkable live Up Close and Personal concert experience to Cranbrook’s Key City Theatre on March 8 (2020).
This show is far different than most other shows MacMaster does, and her fans Canada-wide love it. It’s an intimate, lively night of acoustic Cape Breton traditional and original music with Natalie joined by a trio of guests: European Celtic guitarist, Tim Ebey, Canadian Juno award winning percussionist Ben Wittman and Natalie’s oldest daughter, Mary Frances Leahy.
Natalie MacMaster has built a sterling multi-decade career on electrifying playing and must-see live performances. Her extensive discography showcases MacMaster as both soloist and marquee collaborator and is now working on what will be her 12th solo LP.
The awards and accolades for MacMaster have been numerous. She has won Junos, 19 East Coast Music awards, five Canadian Country Music awards as Fiddler of the Year, been nominated for a Grammy, and was presented with the Order of Canada Award in recognition of her peerless artistic status.
Her collaborations with other artists have been very notable as well. She was featured on Yo-Yo Ma’s Songs of Joy and Peace which won a GRAMMY AWARD for Best Classical Crossover Album. She has performed with Bela Fleck, Faith Hill, Carlos Santana, the Chieftans, Don Henley, Buddy MacMaster, Jesse Cook and Johnny Reid.
