Cassie & Maggie MacDonald

Friday, May 5, at 7:30 pm
Old Songs Community Arts Center, 37 S Main St
Voorheesville, NY 12186 United States

Nova Scotians Cassie & Maggie MacDonald have found the perfect balance between musical integrity and sheer entertainment. While staying true to their Celtic roots, they explore and test the boundaries of traditional music, bringing a breath of fresh air to the genre with their original compositions and arrangements. Cassie (on fiddle) and Maggie (on piano and guitar) are always at home, whether playing tunes passed down through generations of musicians or seamlessly weaving themes from the Moonlight Sonata into sets of sure-fire reels.
