Concert featuring the lively Cape Breton Music of Cassie and Maggie MacDonald!

These two young women from Nova Scotia two encompass everything you could ask for in a musical act. Exciting and innovative, they have found a perfect balance between musical integrity, and sheer entertainment. While staying true to their Celtic roots, Cassie & Maggie MacDonald have explored and tested the boundaries of traditional music, bringing a breath of fresh air to the genre with original compositions and arrangements. They have been enchanting audiences far and wide with their infectious energy, driving rhythms and lilting melodies.
