Nova Scotians Cassie and Maggie MacDonald return to Kent County, this time to the Garfield Center for the Arts at 210 High St. in Chestertown in a performance co-sponsored by The Mainstay. Born to a family with a rich musical heritage and raised in Nova Scotia’s musical culture and traditions, they have used their unique upbringing as a springboard for their own brand of Celtic Roots music. The music is anchored by the powerful, lively fiddling of elder sister Cassie MacDonald and the beautiful piano work, guitar and clear vocals of her younger sister Maggie MacDonald. Both are accomplished step dancers. This is the kind of family music that has always fueled the Maritimes, and there’s a very real closeness and joy in this music that can only come from siblings making music together. They are equally at home playing tunes passed down through generations of musicians, seamlessly weaving a theme from the Moonlight Sonata into a set of sure-fire reels or bringing a breath of fresh air with their original compositions and arrangements. They manage to stay true to their Celtic roots while exploring and testing the boundaries of traditional music. Their infectious energy, clear vocals, driving Celtic rhythms and lilting melodies on keyboards and fiddle are sure to have you dancing in your seat. $15 Buy tickets on the Garfield website or at their box office 410-810-2060.
