One of the world’s top Celtic music groups returns to Symphony Nova Scotia! From their roots in Cape Breton’s Sydney Mines, the five talented siblings of the Barra MacNeils are famed worldwide for their tight harmonies, fleet-footed step-dancing, and deft multi-instrumental prowess. Now, hear the Barras perform lush, symphonic renditions of down-home jigs, reels, and strathspeys in this foot-stomping celebration of Nova Scotia’s rich Celtic heritage.

"Cape Breton’s Barra MacNeils are like an orchestra unto themselves... so imagine their fiery reels and poignant ballads amplified by Symphony Nova Scotia. It’s like James Cameron adding 3-D to his blockbuster Titanic, taking something majestic and raising it to the realm of spectacle."The Chronicle Herald
