A Celtic Family Christmas

Natalie MacMaster & Donnell Leahy

A Celtic Family Christmas

Wednesday, December 13, 2017 at 7:30 pm

It truly is a family affair when Natalie MacMaster and Donnell Leahy bring their Celtic- by way of Cape Breton, Canada - music to the stage for a holiday party. MacMaster and Leahy are married, and their performances marry their masterful fiddle playing with the sounds and traditions of their home. This celebration is a homecoming of sorts as the musicians - whose long association with Hancher makes them feel like family - bring their take on the holidays to the new Hancher Auditorium stage for the first time.
