Sheumas MacNeil

Sheumas MacNeil, the eldest of six siblings who make up the Barra MacNeils, began playing piano at a very young age. He soon teamed up with his younger, fiddle playing brother Kyle and the duo performed regularly at local square dances. Together they set the stage for what is now the Barra MacNeils. Sheumas studied music at Mount Allison University where he received his Bachelor of Music Major in Pipe Organ. In addition to performing at this year’s festival with The Barra MacNeils, Sheumas will also be accompanying fiddler McKayla MacNeil with his son, guitar player Malcolm MacNeil .
