Watch the Performance

A Celtic Family Christmas

Champion fiddlers Natalie MacMaster, Donnell Leahy, and their seven children welcome us directly into their home to experience Christmas with them like never before through a virtual performance. Join their family as they invite you into their home for Celtic music and stories of raising their children, farming, food, and Christmas traditions. Celebrate with this high-energy performance full of Celtic music and step-dancing with the entire family. Musicians Mac Morin, piano, Mark Kelso, drums, Remi Arsenault, bass, and Elmer Ferrer, guitar join in for a few numbers. Nothing is ever dull in this house, and with this holiday celebration you’re in for a treat!
