"Nothing short of jaw dropping … There are performances here that will raise you up and performances that will leave you misty-eyed."
—The Guardian

“MacMaster and Leahy are brilliant violinists who know what they’re doing and do it very well, all the while bringing charisma and palpable joy to the proceedings. Their children [perform] nimble fiddling and step-dancing; clearly, these apples haven’t fallen far from the tree. Lively…lovely…sweet charm.” Telegram & Gazette

Step lively into the holidays with this irresistible family show! The musical traditions of Canada’s Cape Breton Island embrace the region’s Scottish heritage and the rich traditions of Celtic music—and one of Cape Breton’s most famous attractions is the musical couple of award-winning fiddle virtuoso Natalie MacMaster and her dazzlingly gifted fiddler husband, Donnell Leahy. Add to that five of their musically gifted children and you’ve got a fiddling, step-dancing, singing celebration like no other! This rollicking show blends familiar Christmas songs with classic Celtic tunes, welcoming you to the MacMasters’ own Christmas party, filled with warmth and joy.
