Close your eyes and imagine the perfect winter wonderland for Christmas. A thick blanket of snow, frosted trees, and the sun in a blue sky making everything radiant and beautiful. Then, when the sun sets, the whole community lights up to celebrate this special time of year!
Is that what you imagined? If so, you just pictured what it’s like to be Cornwall, Ontario during December.
The Barra Macneils are an East Coast classic, combining traditional artistry with a warm, inviting stage presence that makes people want to get up and stomp their feet, attempting the intricacies of a Celtic dance. These five siblings are funny, talented and put on a heck of a show – and their Christmas shows are one of the most special events you’re ever likely to see! The Halifax Daily News calls them "a treasure of the East Coast, rich with tradition and unmatched in ensemble performance" and the Globe & Mail call their collection of carols "one of the best five Christmas albums of all time!"
They will be appearing in Cornwall at the Aultsville Theatre on December 11, and believe us – this is a shortcut to holiday cheer! It’s bound to be glorious and joyful and we hope we’ll see you there.
Can’t get enough of a Celtic Christmas? Wayne Rostad will be bringing his beloved Christmas ensemble show returning to Cornwall on December 15! Featuring a wide array of incredible musicians and performers, this year’s special guest will be Kelli Trottier, who combines pyrotechnic fiddling with high-flying step dancing! It’s sure to be a show that everyone in your family will enjoy. Check it out at the Cornwall Civic Complex.
