Barra MacNeils: On the Bright Side

Barra MacNeils come to Harbourfront with new album

The Barra MacNeils perform October 5 at The Harbourfront Theatre in Summerside.

The Barra MacNeils are currently touring in support of their latest release, On The Bright Side, an 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. 

This is their first album of new original music that the group has done since 2005. Lucy MacNeil says the new album has a more optimistic slant and as far as she’s concerned, the group has never sounded better. “I really feel all of us are singing better, playing better than ever. We like how it flows.”

The five MacNeil siblings—Lucy, Boyd, Stewart, Kyle and Sheumas—combine on accordion, guitar, piano, fiddle, bodhran, mandolin, banjo, Celtic harp, tin whistles, bouzouki, flute. The nimble-fingered Jamie Gatti joins them on bass.
