2018 JUNO Awards nominees and Canadian Folk Music Award winners, the Nova Scotian sisters, Cassie and Maggie, are putting their own 21st century stamp on the Celtic soundtrack of this nation. Exciting and innovative, their talent is surpassed only by the sheer joy they exude in performance. Alternating between Gaelic and English, traditional and contemporary, haunting and electrifying, the duo is nothing short of mesmerizing. Born to a family of deep Nova Scotia roots and a rich musical history, the two have been enchanting audiences around the world with their unparalleled unity of strings, voices, and fabulous percussive step dance.
Theirs is the perfect balance between musical integrity and sheer entertainment as they seamlessly blend tunes passed down through generations of musicians with their own songwriting, borrowing from other writers, other genres and other eras.
They’re turning heads wherever they go – 2018 JUNO nominees, Galaxie Radio Rising Star award winners, 17 Canadian Folk Music, East Coast Music, and Music Nova Scotia awards and nominations, “Female Singers of the Year” by Live Ireland Radio, “Female Vocal Album of the Year” by Chicago Irish American News, and “Album of the Year” by NPR’s Celtic Connection – the list goes on.
