To celebrate 25 years as Canada’s Celtic ambassadors, the six siblings of The Barra MacNeils sail their anniversary tour to Newfoundland for a family-friendly evening of award-winning harmonies and virtuoso musicianship. Hailing from Cape Breton Island, the band of brothers and sister Lucy spread joy across the globe with their romping, roving, and step-kicking performances. The group sings shanties and jigs of ancient cultures with a polyphonic sound that seduces mermaids and shames sirens. Armed with traditional instruments such as mandolins, tin whistles, bodhrans, banjos, fiddles, and Auto-Tune audio processors, the anniversary tour treats fans of the MacNeils clan to favourites from their East Coast Music Award–winning catalogue. The tour also includes numbers from their latest album, The Celtic Colours Session, and tunes from another new album recorded with Symphony Nova Scotia.
As a center of the St. John’s cultural scene, the lofty yet intimate Holy Heart Theatre has played host to myriad arts, including the Royal Winnipeg Ballet and the Canadian Opera Company. The recently upgraded lighting system illuminates The Barra MacNeils’ already-glowing performance, and the restored fly gallery offers performers a great place to hang-dry their laundry.
