Barras back on road with Christmas tour
SYDNEY MINES, N.S. – Crowd-pleasers The Barra MacNeils are in the middle of their annual cross-Canada Christmas tour, which will wind up at the Savoy Theatre in Glace Bay on Dece. 23 with two shows.
Tickets are still available for the 2 p.m. and the 7 p.m. shows but fans of the family band may want to get their tickets soon since concerts are selling out across the country.
Those attending can look forward to classic favourites including: O Holy Night, Ave Maria, Christmas in Killarney and Auld Lang Syne as well as some comedy, seasonal stories, music, singing, dance and memories. And for those who want to continue the holiday feeling after the show, the group has three Christmas albums as well as a concert DVD, Cape Breton Christmas.
This year anyone attending a Barra MacNeil’s Christmas concert during the cross-Canada tour will also have an opportunity to win a trip to Cape Breton Island through a partnership with Destination Cape Breton. Details will be provided at each live performance.
