A Grand Theatre Presents performance.
Award winning Cape Breton musician Natalie MacMaster began her fiddling career at 16 releasing her debut album Four on the Floor. Her musical venture now spans over three decades, completing 11 albums, performing thousands of shows and collaborating with a multitude of world renowned artists.
Honing his remarkable talent since the age of three, Donnell has literally spent his entire life with a fiddle in his hand. From learning his initial skills from his parents, to training his ear to learn tunes from fiddlers both in person and on recordings, to developing his own style within the borders of his family band, Donnell has single-handedly created a new genre of music, known simply as "Leahy."
And now, after over 10 years of marriage to fellow Canadian fiddling icon Donnell Leahy, Natalie is expanding audience horizons by involving Donnell and their children into her performances. With riveting original pieces, traditional Cape Breton tunes, step-dancing, story-telling, and a joie-de-vivre you have to see to believe, Natalie and Donnell have created a musical progeny that is in all ways unique and enticing and ensures that a strong Canadian fiddling tradition will exist for years to come.
