From the deepest roots of Canada and it’s very erliest musical traditionals come Nova Scotian sisters Cassie and Maggie, putting their own 21 st Century stamp on the Celtic soundtrack of this nation. Exciting and innovative, their talent is surpassed only by the sheer joy they exude in performance. Alternating between Gaelic and English, traditional and contemporary, haunting and electrifying, the duo is nothing
short of mesmerizing.
Born to a family of deep Nova Scotia roots and a rich musical history, the two have been enchanting audiences around the world with their unparalleled unity of strings, voices and fabulous percussive step dance. Theirs is the perfect balance between musical integrity and sheer entertainment as they seamlessly blend tunes passed down through generations of musicians with their own songwriting, borrowing from
other writers, other generes and other eras.
They’re turning heads wherever they go- 2018 JUNO award nominees, Galazie Radio Rising Star award winners, 17 Canadian Folk Music, East Coast Music and Music Nova Scotia awards and nominations – the list goes on.
