Cassie & Maggie MacDonald

Nova Scotian sisters Cassie and Maggie have been lighting up the world with their unique blend of traditional and contemporary Celtic instrumentals and songs. Appearing on stages across North America, the U.K., and Europe, the sisters have enchanted audiences far and wide with lively fiddle, piano, and guitar arrangements and stunning sibling vocal harmonies in both English and Gaelic, all complemented by their intricate and percussive step dancing style. Putting their own 21st century stamp on the Celtic soundtrack of this nation, Cassie and Maggie are exciting and innovative, their talent surpassed only by the sheer joy they exude in performance. Alternating between Gaelic and English, traditional and contemporary, haunting and electrifying, the duo is nothing short of mesmerizing. Born into a family of deep Nova Scotia roots and a rich musical history, theirs is the perfect balance between musical integrity and sheer entertainment as they seamlessly blend tunes passed down through generations of musicians with their own song-writing, and borrowing from other writers, genres, and eras.
