Cape Breton Fiddle and Step-Dance Dynamo Natalie MacMaster brings high energy Folk and Celtic show to the Calvin Theatre Friday, August 20th at 8PM

"To call Natalie MacMaster the most dynamic performer in Celtic music today is high praise, but it still doesn't get at just how remarkable a concert artist this Cape Breton Island fiddler has become." —The Boston Herald

Equally at home on the concert stage or at a folk festival, Cape Breton fiddler Natalie MacMaster is one of the most versatile and exciting young musicians on both the Folk music and Celtic music scenes. MacMaster's many projects have seen her collaborate and perform with Alison Krauss, the Chieftains, Paul Simon, and Pavarotti. Natalie's live performances are a testament to her incandescent musicianship and boundless energy, featuring foot-tapping rave-ups, heart-rending ballads, and world-class step dancing. MacMaster is equally adept at hypnotizing a crowd while alone in the footlights. Natalie's fiddling fireworks on traditional and contemporary Celtic melodies generate a kind of "Traditional Fusion" delivered with uplifting energy felt by the musicians and audiences of all ages.

Tickets for Natalie MacMaster at the Calvin Theatre, Friday, August 20th at 8PM are $25 and $35 and available at the Northampton Box Office, 76 Main Street, 413-586-8686 and online at
