“We’ve played many times there (in Cornwall) but it’s been a few years,” said Stewart MacNeil, one of the group’s musicians. “It’s nice to be coming back. We have some good friends in the area, so it will be nice to see some folks and catch up with how things are going.”
The Barra MacNeils, a musical group of siblings based out of Cape Breton Island, have been performing and making music together for over 30 years. According to Stewart, the group’s latest album On The Bright Side will contain new music and some of their greatest hits. He thinks that some of the songs will make you feel like you’re in a Cape Breton kitchen party, and others may move you to tears.
