Internationally acclaimed, award winning Nova Scotian musical sister duo – Cassie and Maggie are no strangers to holiday magic. Part of a multi generational musical dynasty; Christmas was always a time to gather near and sing boisterously, as in days of old. The doors were always open to company and the New Year just around the corner.
This season, The MacDonald sisters invite you to bring your kin, to ‘A Very Very Cassie and Maggie Christmas’ celebrating not only yuletide fun but their new album of the same name.
The trademarks of their stage show will be there as sure as reindeer fly. Fiddle, guitar, piano, sibling harmonies and percussive stepdance will mark the season, as well as classic Christmas hymns, ancient carols and a sassy ode to the most mysterious of Santa’s reindeer, Vixen.
“A Christmas confection with perfect measures of sugar and spice, nestled amongst the best loved traditions of Atlantic Canada… the sound that emanates from these two is so enormous if could take up any room and is a true testament to their talent”- New York Theater guide
