Event Notes

× Lucy MacNeil brings her trio to your Chester Playhouse for an intimate show that takes you into the heart of Cape Breton.

Lucy has been performing with the Barra MacNeils for 37 years. They come from a long tradition of Cape Breton music and dance that has been the foundation of creative pursuits over their musical career. Alongside her brothers she has travelled to Europe, Scotland, England, Wales,Ireland, the United States, Barbados, throughout Canada from Fogo Island, Nfld. To Iqualuit and a northern Quebec community, Puvirnituq. In the 1990’s they were signed with record label PolyDor and Opened for Celine Dion, Kenny Rogers and were special guests on two of Rita MacNeils’ Christmas specials.

Lucy’s highly anticipated debut solo album, Angels Whisper , enchants listeners with its ethereal melodies and heartfelt compositions. At the heart of this musical masterpiece lies the standout track, Hope for One and All . With its poignant lyrics and soul-stirring orchestration, the song captures the essence of resilience and optimism, offering a beacon of light in times of uncertainty. Lucy’s mesmerizing vocals intertwine seamlessly with the rich instrumentation, creating a sonic experience that resonates deeply - it is a testament to Lucy MacNeil’s artistry and her ability to touch the hearts of audiences, reaffirming her place as a true musical luminary in the industry.

Join us for an evening of folk music, blending tradition with current influences, with the enchanting Lucy MacNeil.
