Cassie and Maggie MacDonald encompass everything you could ask for in a musical act. Their talent is only surpassed by the joy with which they so generously share it. Exciting and innovative, they have found the perfect balance between musical integrity, and sheer entertainment. While still staying true to their Celtic roots, they have explored and tested the boundaries of traditional music, bringing a breath of fresh air to the genre with their original compositions and arrangements. Sisters, cohorts and collaborators, Cassie and Maggie have been enchanting audiences far and wide with their infectious energy, driving rhythms and lilting melodies.
Cassie and Maggie are turning heads wherever they go and the music community has taken note: They were Canadian Folk Music Award nominees for “Young Performers of the Year”, East Coast Music Award nominees for Traditional Album and double Music Nova Scotia Award nominees for New Artist and Roots Album of the Year. Warren Robinson, Artistic Director of the Goderich Celtic Roots Festival describes them as “A dynamic duo, two sisters whose deep family musical heritage is the launching pad for the finest Nova Scotia fiddle tunes, vocals and step dancing”
Appearing on stages across Canada, the United States, France, Germany, Bermuda and the UK, the list continues to grow as people are beginning to know the names Cassie and Maggie MacDonald. This year will prove to be the busiest and most exciting yet with performances at the Milwaukee Irish Festival, Celtic Colours International Festival and the Green Willow.
