Natalie MacMaster

Award winning Cape Breton musician, Natalie MacMaster, began her fiddling career at 16 releasing her debut album Four on the Floor. Her musical venture now spans over three decades, completing 11 albums, performing thousands of shows and collaborating with a multitude of world renowned artists.

The most recent album by MacMaster, Cape Breton Girl, is a self-described “straight-ahead, traditional record.” The album is filled with an invigorating collection of toe-tapping jigs, reels, and strathspeys that embodies her most cherished values: her family and home, tradition, and faith.

As a result of a life-time of touring and performing, audiences are left clapping, hollering, and screaming for more as Natalie and her band wow them with stylistic diversity without losing the traditional Cape Breton groove they have come to love. The applause only increases with excitement when she incorporates step dancing into her performance. Although MacMaster’s stage presence is reason enough to see one of her shows, it’s the elegance with the bow, the intricate technique with the fiddle, and the embrace of the Cape Breton tradition that floors her admirers at countless shows each year.

And now, after over 10 years of marriage to fellow Canadian fiddling icon Donnell Leahy, Natalie is expanding audience horizons by involving Donnell and their children into her performances. Both MacMaster and Leahy are award-winning musicians, having received Junos and Grammys, innumerable ECMAs and CCMAs, and multiple honorary degrees, Natalie and Donnell have earned respect from industry professionals and fans alike.

What is most captivating about them is that there is an undeniable love for live performance that is not soon forgotten. From the first note, audiences recognize the amazing talent being poured out before them. With riveting original pieces, traditional Cape Breton tunes, step-dancing, story-telling, and a joie-de-vive you have to see to believe, Natalie and Donnell have created a musical progeny that is in all ways unique and enticing and ensures that a strong Canadian fiddling tradition will exist for years to come.
