Barra Mac­neils fea­tured at First United Church con­cert

Truro Daily News - - COLCHESTER COUNTY - SPE­CIAL TO THE TRURO NEWS

The Barra Mac­neils’ East Coast Christ­mas Tour has be­come one of the most beloved con­certs on the sea­sonal cir­cuit.

Their show fea­tures a highly en­ter­tain­ing mix of tra­di­tional sea­sonal fare along with en­ter­tain­ing sto­ries and new mu­si­cal twists.

It’s stamped with their lush har­monies and in­tri­cate in­stru­men­tal stylings.

The tour will make a stop at First United Church in Truro, Wed­nes­day, Dec. 19 at 7:30 p.m.

They have toured na­tion­ally, as well as in the U.S., for years to sold-out houses.

Fans can look for­ward to clas­sic favourites in­clud­ing: O Holy Night, Ave Maria, Christ­mas in Kil­lar­ney and Auld Lang Syne. There’s also com­edy, sea­sonal sto­ries, mu­sic, dance and mem­o­ries.

Their lat­est al­bum, On The Bright Side, was re­leased dur­ing the Sum­mer of 2018.

It’s a col­lec­tion of ev­ery­thing Barra Mac­neils, that fans love, an up­beat al­bum rang­ing from fa­mil­iar fid­dle tunes to heart-wrench­ing Gaelic bal­lads.

This year any­one at­tend­ing a Barra Macneil’s Christ­mas con­cert will have an op­por­tu­nity to win a trip to Cape Bre­ton Is­land through part­ner­ship with the is­land’s tourism or­ga­ni­za­tion, Des­ti­na­tion Cape Bre­ton.
