A traditional favourite, the Barra MacNeils’ An East Coast Christmas is a treat for the whole family. The five siblings are known for their brilliant instrumentals, ringing harmonies and delightful flair for story-telling. Their unique seasonal show is crafted each year to bring a special Celtic spin on traditional favourites and original east coast treasures with songs, stories and dance.
Their stunning rendition of O Holy Night is just one of the many highlights that brings audiences to their feet. Fans can also look forward to gems like Ave Maria, Christmas in Killarney, and Auld Lang Syne among an array of originals and seasonal delights.
Fresh off their On The Bright Side tour, highlighting the release of their latest studio album, the group has been winning over new audiences with their sparkling repertoire, vocals, instrumental prowess and vibrant showmanship. Hailing from Sydney Mines, Cape Breton Island, they are deeply rooted in Celtic music, culture, dance, language and history. Their numerous critically acclaimed recordings have included their own original songs as well as tried and true standards, both instrumental and vocal.
