One of Cape Breton, Nova Scotia’s most important exports and a superstar in the Celtic music world (though she’s far too humble to admit it), fiddler and step-dancer Natalie MacMaster has built a sterling multi-decade career on electrifying playing and must-see live performances. MacMaster’s extensive discography showcases her as both soloist and marquee collaborator, notably with husband and fellow fiddler Donnell Leahy. An Order of Canada is among many accolades the Ontario-based mother of six has received in recognition of her peerless artistic status. Natalie has performed with Béla Fleck, Faith Hill, Carlos Santana, The Chieftains (who invited MacMaster to join the group), Sharon, Lois & Bram, Buddy MacMaster, and Jesse Cook, and she is distantly related to fiddler Ashley MacIsaac and rocker Jack White. It’s been quite a while since we’ve seen Natalie at The Ark, and Canadians will be crossing the border for this one. Get tickets early!
