For Immediate Release - November 30, 2023
Multi-platinum, award-winners The Barra MacNeils will be back on the road in the winter of 2023 with an East Coast Christmas cross-Canada tour with over 35 shows, in 32 cities in 38 days
The Barra MacNeils: East Coast Christmas is a musical potpourri of traditional MacNeil family favourites gleaned from Christmas ceilidhs, midnight masses and the general festive frolic that accompanies each holiday season.
With their captivating vocals, distinctive harmonies and extraordinary musicianship, The Barra MacNeils inject new life and energy into the sights and sounds of Christmas…one moment a rousing chorus, then a hauntingly beautiful Gaelic ballad, the next a flurry of foot-stomping instrumentals, which of course pulls one then another into a step-dancing revelry.
For a delightful seasonal celebration, don’t miss an East Coast Christmas with the Barra MacNeils!
