Natalie MacMaster and Donnel Leahy: An Acoustic Evening with their Children
Harbourfront Theatre is thrilled to welcome back to our stage one of the most famous and acclaimed musical families in North America – Natalie MacMaster and Donnell Leahy, along with their seven children.
When MacMaster and Leahy married in 2002 — both were already stars in their own right — they could not have predicted their merger would recast what contemporary musical success looks like. Or that they would produce a large family and ensure their mantelpiece was jammed with JUNO and East Coast Music Awards while creating an inventory of achievements spanning the globe.
Together the pair have released three albums together. The first, One, was released in 2015, and was produced by legendary producer Bob Ezrin. The pair released a traditional Christmas album, A Celtic Family Christmas, the year after. Their most recent album, Canvas, was released in spring this year. Natalie and Donnell have toured the world together and even feature their seven music-loving children in their performances!
