Nova Scotian sisters CASSIE AND MAGGIE MACDONALD have been lighting up the world with their unique blend of traditional and contemporary Celtic instrumentals and vocals. Appearing on stages across North America, the UK, and Europe the sisters have enchanted audiences far and wide with lively fiddle, piano and guitar arrangements, stunning sibling vocal harmonies in both English and Gaelic, all complemented by their intricate and percussive step-dancing style.
Cassie and Maggie "are among the top musical acts in demand on the Irish/American/Canadian scene," according to Irish Music Magazine. They have won numerous awards including, “Vocalists of the Year”, Chicago Irish-American Newspaper’s “Emerging Artist Recording of the Year” and Galaxie Radio Rising Stars. They have been nominated for Independent Music Award’s "World Song of the Year" and multiple Canadian Folk, East Coast and Music Nova Scotia Music Awards.
Cheryl Prashkar, President of the North East Regional Folk Alliance, has high praise for the sisters: “Cassie and Maggie turned my head like no other act. There is something very special about their sound, their dedication and their spirit that drew me to want to see every moment of their performances! I was not alone; they quickly became fan favourites at that festival as I know they will be wherever they go.”
This season, The MacDonald sisters invite you to bring your kin, to ‘A Very Very Cassie and Maggie Christmas' celebrating not only yuletide fun but their new album of the same name.
Internationally acclaimed, award winning musical sister duo Cassie and Maggie are no strangers to holiday magic. Part of a multi generational musical dynasty; Christmas was always a time to gather near and sing boisterously, as in days of old. The doors were always open to company and the New Year just around the corner.
The trademarks of their stage show will be there as sure as reindeer fly. Fiddle, guitar, piano, sibling harmonies and percussive stepdance will mark the season, as well as classic Christmas hymns, ancient carols and a sassy ode to the most mysterious of Santa's reindeer, Vixen.
A Very Very Cassie and Maggie Christmas is just what the elves ordered for a season of delightful memories.
“A Christmas confection with perfect measures of sugar and spice, nestled amongst the best loved traditions of Atlantic Canada… the sound that emanates from these two is so enormous if could take up any room and is a true testament to their talent"
