Halifax, NS, November 23 2017: Due to popular demand a second show has been added at the Savoy Theatre of The Barra MacNeils Celtic Christmas. The new show is at 7:30 pm on Saturday December 23. Tickets are on sale now at the Savoy box office. Limited tickets are still available for the matinee.
The Savoy shows mark the final performances of their coast-to-coast seasonal tour which launched this week in British Columbia. Other Nova Scotia dates include: C.E.C. Auditorium, Truro – December 16 and Rebecca Cohn Auditorium, Halifax – December 18 and 19th.
A Celtic Christmas with the Barra MacNeils features the five Sydney Mines’ musical siblings with a new show full of seasonal favourites, original tunes, songs, stories and dance all with their unique Celtic spin. A family tradition for many, the show is a perfect way to celebrate the musical magic that the holidays can bring.
“We are thrilled to be finishing our tour at home in Cape Breton this year,” says Stewart MacNeil. “We look forward to celebrating with our fans, friends and family.”
The multi-award-winning group is currently working on a new album – due for release in the spring. The release entitled “On the Bright Side” will feature new recordings of both original and traditional music with the first single out in early December just in time for their tour. A limited release 3-song sampler will be available ONLY at their live shows on the Christmas tour.
The Barra MacNeils are widely regarded as one of the greatest live concert acts in the Celtic world. Their live performance offers a depth of talent that includes multiple lead vocalists, beautiful sibling harmonies, top drawer instrumental talent on a wide variety of acoustic, stringed, percussion and wind instruments blended with dancing, storytelling, humour and Gaelic songs: it is family entertainment at the highest level.
Tickets are now available for both the matinee and the evening show at Savoy Box Office in person, by phone at 902-842-1577 or on-line at savoytheatre.com.
