A CELTIC FAMILY CHRISTMAS

Tuesday, December 11, 7:30pm, Wednesday, December 12, 7:30pm

FirstOntario Performing Arts Centre, 250 St. Paul St., St. Catharines

The entertainment world is filled with extraordinary stories. But few match the beguiling true-life tale of Natalie MacMaster and Donnell Leahy, Canada’s reigning couple of Celtic music, whose dazzling career achievements underpin an incomparable off-stage life.

When two of the planet’s very best fiddle players married in 2002, the proverbial mantelpiece was instantly crammed with JUNO and East Coast Music Awards. Though MacMaster and Leahy followed different trajectories – she a Cape Breton native who could step-dance before she could walk; he the oldest brother of acclaimed family group Leahy – both had assuredly crested the traditional music peak.

Experience a dazzling holiday performance from Canada’s reigning couple of Celtic music and their ever-growing, multi-talented family.
