We regret to inform you that both Natalie MacMaster & Donnell Leahy’s tour and performance at the Academy Center of the Arts on March 7, 2023, have been CANCELED.
Statement from Natalie MacMaster & Donnell Leahy:
“I’ve just been informed that we have been denied entry into the United States due to the temporary travel restrictions. I know this creates much hardship for you, the ticket buyers, theatres, and personnel. We are very sorry for this. It has been extremely difficult for our family as well.”
Hearing Natalie MacMaster and Donnell Leahy speak reverentially about the fiddle, which has propelled their dazzling careers since childhood while cementing their status as Canada’s reigning couple of Celtic music, is almost as electrifying as hearing them play it.
Indeed, 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.
Their synergy was brilliantly showcased on the pair’s first recorded collaboration, 2015’s Bob Ezrinproduced album One, a crowning achievement complementing combined album sales of over one million, a CV listing cellist Yo-Yo Ma, bluegrass star Alison Krauss, and banjo ace Béla Fleck as past collaborators (and Shania Twain and The Chieftains as fans) plus a devoted audience stretching from
Sydney, Nova Scotia to Sydney, Australia.
Note that the event producer and Artist may change dates, times, and/or venues depending on the current COVID-19 environment. Ticket buyers will be updated by the Academy Center of the Arts staff, should any change to schedule or venue occurs.
