Barra Macneils featured at First United Church concert
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.
