Natalie MacMaster (pictured) has the best of both worlds when her husband, Donnell Leahy, accompanies her onstage. Hailing from Cape Breton Island and Ontario, respectively, the master fiddlers pay tribute to Canada’s rich musical past with original tunes and time-tested favorites. Together the two transcend genres with fiddle-driven music, song and dance that travels without pause from French and Celtic styles to Cajun and bluegrass. Paired with MacMaster and Leahy’s passion for performing, this versatility — think fast-paced step dancing that gives way to breathtaking ballads — creates a one-of-a-kind concert experience.
