A Celtic Family Christmas will guide you into the wonderful world of a true MacMaster Leahy Christmas celebration

Join Natalie MacMaster and Donnell Leahy for A Celtic Family Christmas

Award-winning fiddle virtuosos Natalie MacMaster and Donnell Leahy (pictured right)come to Campbell River Nov. 30 for an intimate and unique Christmas event you will never forget.

With the duo accompanied by an incredible array of talented musicians – and their children – A Celtic Family Christmas will guide you into the wonderful world of a true MacMaster Leahy Christmas celebration.

“For the album A Celtic Family Christmas, we’ve taken some classic Christmas songs and flavoured them with our own brand of Celtic tradition,” says MacMaster. “We have celebrated Christmas in a big way our entire lives and finally have recorded the music. What ease and joy with which it came pouring out!

“This tour is going to have an energy that goes beyond the duration of the show. Many Christmas songs have gorgeous melodies that stand strong as instrumental pieces and I want it to stay with our fans throughout the holidays, and beyond.”

The album creates a counterbalance between both the traditional and modern, Leahy says.

“I feel there is a lot of depth behind the melodies and meanings. What I love about this record are the layers of ancient instruments, weaving through and around one another to create a Celtic Christmas tapestry.”

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 eleven East Coast Music Awards and been nominated for a Grammy.

Leahy is no stranger to the awards podium himself. He was the incendiary 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.

Get tickets for this show at the Tidemark Theatre Box Office from noon to 4 p.m. Tuesday through Friday or online at tickets.tidemarktheatre.com.
