Siblings set to sing

The Rotary Centre for the Arts is getting set to welcome siblings Cassie & Maggie to the Mary Irwin Theatre for an intimate evening of live music on Feb. 4.

Sisters from Nova Scotia, Cassie and Maggie have been lighting up the world with their unique blend of traditional and contemporary Celtic instrumentals and vocals for many years.

The two have appeared on stages across North America, the UK, and Europe. According to the Rotary Centre for the Arts, the sisters have entertained audiences far and wide with lively fiddle, piano, guitar, and vocal harmonies in both English and Gaelic.

This performance is complemented by their unique step-dancing style.

“We are thrilled to welcome Cassie and Maggie to the Mary Irwin Theatre, as we love to showcase the exceptional talent from across Canada," said RCA executive director Colleen Fitzpatrick.

"Cassie and Maggie are an unbelievably talented duo whose talent is symbolized by depth and variety in the music they perform."

The two sisters have been recognized for their talents, snagging themselves a 2018 JUNO nomination, 17 awards and nominations for Canadian Folk Music, East Coast Music, and Music Nova Scotia, and Chicago Irish American News' Female Vocal Album of the Year award.

Cassie is a powerful and lively fiddler, while her younger sister Maggie brings beautiful sounds from her guitar, piano, and vocals.

It’s often noted that family groups have a special musical closeness and Cassie and Maggie demonstrate this interesting phenomenon.

Cassie and Maggie released a new album called The Willow Collection, with the song "Seilach" reaching over 111,000 listens on Spotify.

The show kicks off on Feb 4. at 7:30 p.m.
