Celtic musician Natalie MacMaster on the Strand stage, March 1

    ROCKLAND — Canadian fiddler and step-dancer Natalie MacMaster will appear on the Strand Theatre stage with her husband and fellow fiddler, Donnell Leahy, on Wednesday, March 1, at 7:30 p.m. 

    “A superstar in the Celtic music world, MacMaster has built a multi-decade career on electrifying playing and must-see live performances,” said the Strand, in a news release.

    Hailing from Inverness County, Nova Scotia, she plays Cape Breton fiddle music and has toured with the Chieftains, Faith Hill, Carlos Santana, and Alison Krauss, and has recorded with Yo-Yo Ma. An Order of Canada is among the many accolades the Ontario-based mother of seven has received. 

    Performing with MacMaster is her husband and fellow fiddler, Donnell Leahy. Leahy's lifelong devotion to playing and performing as a solo artist started with his 10 siblings in the  group Leahy (of which he was frontman and business lead).

    “More recently, alongside his wife and collaborator, he has cemented his reputation as a peerless instrumentalist able to synthesize traditional influences with more contemporary Celtic/folk sensibilities,” said the release. “His Irish/Cape Breton lineage weaves its way into the sonic mix.”
