Natalie MacMaster: Up Close & Personal

One of Cape Breton, Nova Scotia’s most important exports and a superstar in the Celtic music world, fiddler and step-dancer Natalie MacMaster will be bringing her remarkable live Up Close and Personal concert experience to Trail on Monday, March 9th.

This show is far different than most other shows MacMaster does, and her fans Canada-wide love it. It's an intimate, lively night of acoustic Cape Breton traditional and original music with MacMaster. She will be joined by a trio of guests: European Celtic guitarist Tim Irish, Canadian Juno award winning percussionist Mark Kelso, and Natalie’s oldest daughter Mary Frances Leahy.

Natalie MacMaster has built a sterling multi-decade career on electrifying playing and must-see live performances. Her extensive discography showcases MacMaster as both soloist and marquee collaborator and is now working on what will be her 12th solo LP.

The awards and accolades for MacMaster have been numerous. She has won Juno’s, 19 East Coast Music awards, 5 Canadian Country Music awards as Fiddler of the Year, been nominated for a Grammy, and was presented with the Order of Canada Award in recognition of her peerless artistic status. Her collaborations with other artists have been very notable as well. She was featured on Yo-Yo Ma’s Songs of Joy and Peace which won a GRAMMY AWARD for Best Classical Crossover Album. She has performed with Bela Fleck, Faith Hill, Carlos Santana, the Chieftans, Don Henley, Buddy MacMaster, Jesse Cook and Johnny Reid.

Reserved seating. All tickets $49.50. Show time 7:30 pm.
