A Christmas tradition in Peterborough
… that sense of home that they can bring wherever they play. Especially at Christmas, when they share the warmth of their childhood on Cape Breton with audiences across the country. This happens Thursday night at Showplace, with a 7:30 performance of their annual An East Coast Christmas show. Tickets are $50 and available at the Showplace box office, 705-742-7469 or online at showplace.org. Featuring five musical Macneil siblings – Stewart, Kyle, Lucy, Sheumas and Boyd, with Jamie Gatti on bass, the holiday celebration lets the family soar on traditional instruments, with stepdancing, storytelling and their famous harmonies, often served up a capella.
