BRATTLEBORO- Equally at home on the concert stage or at a folk festival, Grammy-winning Cape Breton fiddler Natalie MacMaster is one of the most versatile and exciting young musicians on both the folk and Celtic music scenes.

MacMaster’s many projects have seen her collaborate and perform with Alison Krauss, Carlos Santana, the Chieftains, Paul Simon, Pavarotti, and Yo Yo Ma.

Kingdom County Productions and Marlboro College will present Natalie MacMaster performing her holiday-themed concert, “Christmas in Cape Breton,” 7:30 pm, Friday, December 6, at the Latchis Theater.

In Brattleboro this year and performing with her for the second year in a row, will be the Kurn Hattin Homes for Children Select Choir, directed by Grammy-nominated music teacher Lisa Bianconi.

MacMaster’s live performances are a testament to her incandescent musicianship and boundless energy, featuring foot-tapping rave-ups, heart rending ballads, and world-class step dancing. MacMaster is equally adept at hypnotizing a crowd while alone in the footlights. MacMaster’s fiddling fireworks on traditional and contemporary Celtic melodies generate a kind of “traditional fusion” delivered with uplifting energy felt by musicians and audiences of all ages.
