As a group, the six MacNeil siblings are widely regarded as one of the greatest live acts in the Celtic world. Hailing from Sydney Mines, Cape Breton Island, Nova Scotia, the family group is deeply rooted in Celtic music, culture and history. Their numerous critically acclaimed recordings have included their own original songs as well as tried and true standards, both instrumental and vocal, some of which have achieved the coveted Gold record status in Canada.

The Barra MacNeils live concert experience brings so much more to the stage than most live acts ever can. Multiple lead vocalists, beautiful sibling harmonies, top drawer instrumental prowess on a wide variety of acoustic, stringed, percussion and wind instruments, dancing, storytelling, Gaelic songs and a journey through an ancient culture. Family entertainment at its highest level.

Steeped in Cape Breton tradition with strong Celtic roots and musical artistry, this diverse and talented family group continues to wow audiences around the world. They were recently nominated for PEI’s Fans Choice Award for Entertainers of the Year 2014. They continue to perform to sold out audiences throughout Canada, the US, the Caribbean, and the United Kingdom. The Barra MacNeils one hour Xmas television special filmed a number of years ago, continues to be broadcast on Country Music Television and on PBS in the United States.

In November, they bring that popular Xmas show to fans in Kelowna and will start the Xmas season in the Okanagan with a distinctive Celtic flavour.  One of the most beloved concerts on the seasonal circuit, the Barra MacNeils Xmas shows always feature a highly entertaining brand of seasonal fare mixed with entertaining stories, and stamped with their lush harmonies and intricate instrumental stylings. Fans can look forward to classic favourites including Oh Holy Night, Ave Maria, A Xmas in Kilarney and many more, as well as some comedy, seasonal stories, music, singing, dance and of course memories that will extend beyond the season and last a lifetime.
