The Barra MacNeils are touring in support of their latest release, “On The Bright Side,” an awesome collection of everything their fans love. It's an upbeat album, with fiddle tunes that you know will erupt into a flurry of step-dancing on stage. When Lucy sings the heart-wrenching Ribhinn Donn, whether or not you 'have the Gaelic,' be sure to have a tissue handy. You'll need it! The recording and shows will also feature the first single from the release, the instantly catchy:  Living the Dream.
 
The distinctive family harmonies; an array of rhythmic instruments weaving through and around various themes - some decidedly classical but then, suddenly, very traditional Cape Breton; the lads singing acappella; a thoughtful solo gradually merging into a frenzied all-hands-on-deck medley... it exudes the passion and energy familiar to anyone who has ever experienced The Barra MacNeils stage show.
 
As always, the five MacNeil siblings - Lucy, Boyd, Stewart, Kyle and Sheumas - combine on a vast array of instruments including accordion, guitar, piano, fiddle, bodhran, mandolin, banjo, Celtic harp, tin whistles, bouzouki, flute... underpinned by the nimble-fingered Jamie Gatti on
bass.

Don't miss On The Bright Side from The Barra MacNeils!
