“A Celtic Family Christmas” with Natalie MacMaster & Donnell Leahy

Performance Santa Fe presents A Celtic Family Christmas with Natalie MacMaster and Donnell Leahy!

This holiday season, join Canada’s reigning musical couple Natalie MacMaster and Donnell Leahy in a rousing, warm, and exuberant concert that is “nothing short of jaw-dropping” (The Guardian). The star fiddling duo will transport audiences during A Celtic Family Christmas with the help of an incredible array of talented musicians, including MacMaster and Leahy’s own musical children, Mac Morin on piano, Elmer Ferrer on guitar, and Rémi Arsenault on guitar. Through both music and dance, the group awakens the Christmas spirit with high-energy renditions of familiar holiday tunes intermingled with traditional Celtic songs.

Grammy-winning superstar Natalie MacMaster is no stranger to fans of fiddle music. With a career spanning over two decades, MacMaster has recorded gold-certified albums, earned a JUNO award and eleven East Coast Music Awards, and collaborated with such great artists as Yo-Yo Ma (on his Grammy-winning album Songs of Joy & Peace), Alison Krauss, Jesse Cook, and Béla Fleck.

Widely recognized as one of the best fiddlers of our time, Donnell Leahy is the former frontman of Ontario’s celebrated Celtic family band Leahy. Under his leadership, the group won three JUNO awards and six nominations, created two platinum-certified albums, and was the featured subject of the Academy Award-winning film The Leahys: Music Most of All.
