Natalie MacMaster and Donnell Leahy are two of the world's most celebrated fiddlers. They also happen to be married. Together, Natalie and Donnell meld their virtuosities into a whirlwind of fiddle-driven music, dance, and song, combining the best of French, Celtic and American Bluegrass and even Cajun styles and making the music their own. Joined by two highly-acclaimed pianists in their own right, Mac Morin and Erin Leahy, you'll be treated to the foot-tapping rave-ups, heart-wrenching ballads, and world-class step dancing that have brought audiences to their feet around the world. By the end of the evening, you will have been enriched by the music, the stories and the warmth of the Cape Breton lifestyle.
