Eleanor McCain presents an evening filled with the celebration of Celtic music with her dazzling vocals, beloved ballads and time-honoured songs. A multiple award-nominated artist, she has recorded six critically acclaimed albums and appeared with orchestras across Canada. In 2017, McCain released True North: The Canadian Songbook—32 iconic songs reimagined by 14 Canadian arrangers, recorded with 10 Canadian orchestras, and featuring guest appearances by 28 celebrated Canadian artists.
Hailing from New Brunswick, Canada, this multiple East Coast Music Award-nominated classical crossover artist has recorded six albums, toured with noted JUNO-nominated jazz singer Matt Dusk, and appeared with orchestras across Canada. She’s also had the honour of collaborating with artists such as Roch Voisine, Natalie MacMaster, Jens Lindemann, Jan Lisiecki, Liona Boyd, John McDermott, Chantal Kreviazuk, the Elmer Iseler Singers, and Carlos Nunez, among others
The North Atlantic Drift is the water current that runs between the East coast of Canada and the West coast of Europe and Ireland. The opening set of North Atlantic Drift reflects this, following a centuries-long tradition of the trading of music and musical styles between Ireland, Scotland and the East coast of Canada. Brian Taheny from Sligo, Ireland, Dan MacDonald from Cape Breton Island and Ross Griffiths from the Ontario piping tradition form this particular trading triangle and the product is a multi-instrumental, multi-styled celtic sound that is truly Canadian in its diversity.
