The Barra MacNeils live concert experience brings so much more to the stage than most live acts ever can. As a group, the MacNeil siblings are widely regarded as one of the greatest live concert acts in the Celtic world.
Hailing from Sydney Mines, Cape Breton Island, Nova Scotia, this family group continues to wow audiences around the world with their captivating vocals, harmonies and extraordinary musicianship. Multiple lead vocalists, beautiful sibling harmonies, top drawer instrumental prowess on a wide variety of acoustic, stringed, percussion and wind instruments blended with dancing and storytelling; it is a family entertainment at its highest level.
Canada’s Celtic ambassadors, the Barra MacNeils continue to perform to sold out audiences throughout Canada, the United States, the Caribbean, the United Kingdom and Europe. From headlining major festivals, concerts, special guest appearances, television specials, film and television placement and their annual Christmas tour, they have set the course with a solid foundation for success.
2015 marks over 28 years for this incredibly talented family group in an outstanding recording and touring career.
