Fun, exciting, charming and talented Cassie Anne and Maggie Jane MacDonald are a dynamic Celtic sister duo who have emerged onto the music scene as the ones to watch.
Born in Halifax, with strong roots in Antigonish, Nova Scotia, the girls have been wowing audiences across Canada with their unique blend of original and traditional Celtic music. Cassie’s fiddle playing has been described as sweet and elegant with just the right amount of raw power while Maggie’s piano playing has an irresistible drive that will leave your foot incapable of staying still and compliments Cassie’s playing perfectly.
Together these delightful sisters bring more than your average fiddle and piano duo; Cassie is an award winning highland and step dancer and also sings harmony for Maggie. In addition to her virtuosic piano playing, Maggie sings lead, plays guitar and is also an accomplished step dancer. Their music fits together seamlessly, encompassing various styles from Cape Breton reels to Antigonish Polkas, Quebecois fiddling and foot work to down east standards. Their vocal harmonies are sweet yet powerful and their step dancing exact and exciting, showing off their youthful charm and energy. They are certainly rising stars in the Celtic music scene; their act is exciting, captivating and not to be missed!
