Sisters Cassie and Maggie McDonald hail from Canada and we are lucky enough to have them as part of their UK tour. Exciting and innovative, they have found a perfect balance between musical integrity, and sheer entertainment. While staying true to their Nova Scotia Celtic roots, they have explored and tested the boundaries of traditional music.
“Be it their foot percussion accompanying driving Nova Scotian sets, their perfect blend of sibling harmonies, added to a stunning interplay on various instruments, a musical evening spent with Cassie and Maggie is a great night, altogether” -Irish Music Magazine. Their new album, The Willow Collection “showcases not only their musical ability, but the depth and variety of their musicianship.” IMM. Cassie and Maggie are an unbelievably gifted duo… the train is just gathering steam and leaving the station on these new stars. It is going to be a glorious journey, and it is already well-begun.” –Live Ireland Radio- Dublin, IR
