Juno Award winning fiddle virtuosos Natalie MacMaster and Donnell Leahy are hitting the road again to bring back their successful concert series, A Celtic Family Xmas.
This intimate and unique show sold out everywhere prior to the pandemic and it will see the duo perform with their incredibly talented children playing Celtic and holiday favourites that are fun for the entire family.
“Christmas is where the whole concept started, and we are very excited to be travelling as a family again,” said Donnell Leahy. “It’s a perfect time to travel with the children and bring light and happiness to families and fans across the country.”
This year, A Celtic Family Xmas, which contains a soon to be revealed theatrical element that will thrillingly traverse time and continents while contextualizing the music and its players, will touch down at marquee venues across Canada including Cranbrook, confirms the duo as a powerhouse on the seasonal circuit and is a perfect way to put yourself and your own family in the Xmas spirit.
