If you really love fiddle music, there are performances here that are nothing short of jaw dropping … performances that will raise you up and performances that will leave you misty–eyed

—The Guardian

The perfect family event for the holidays! Join the Quick for a special holiday performance by husband-and-wife duo Natalie MacMaster and Donnell Leahy, the award-winning fiddle virtuosos.

Accompanied by an incredible array of talented musicians – and their children – A Celtic Family Christmas includes a lineup of familiar Christmas songs intermingled with classic Celtic tunes.

Hailing from Cape Breton Island, MacMaster received her first fiddle at the age of 9, launching a career that has lasted more than 30 years. Leahy was inspired by a fiddle-playing father from Ontario and a step-dancing mother from Cape Breton. When MacMaster and Leahy married in 2002, the two musicians became a powerhouse of talent.

Their first recorded collaboration, 2015’s album “One,” was followed by 2016’s “A Celtic Family Christmas.” Their combined album sales exceed 1 million, and their past collaborators have included classical cellist Yo-Yo Ma, bluegrass star Alison Krauss, and banjo ace Béla Fleck.
