From the deepest roots of Canada and it’s very earliest musical traditionals come Nova Scotian sisters Cassie and Maggie, 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 generes and other eras.

They’re turning heads wherever they go- 2018 JUNO award nominees, Galaxie Radio Rising Star award winners, 17 Canadian Folk Music, East Coast Music and Music Nova Scotia awards and nominations – the list goes on.

"Cassie and Maggie…What an unbelievably gifted duo, the train is just gathering stream and leaving the station on these new stars. It is going to be a glorious journey, and it is already well-begun." – Live Ireland Radio-Dublin
