NicNeil MacNeil Sisters
NicNeil MacNeil Sisters - Breath From Barra
Genre: Celtic, Folk, Roots, Singer-Songwriter, Traditional

We are five sisters: Jessie Helen, Nora, Orianna, Katie Agnes and Floragael MacNeil. NicNeil represents our Gaelic and English cultures. "Nic" means daughter and "Neil" is our family name. We have been surrounded by and playing music all of our lives, led by the hands and hearts of our parents Tracey & Paul who are both noted musicians in their own right. We lived along the shores of the Bras d'Or Lakes and now we live along the shores of Mabou Harbour. Our first professional recording, Back Current Jam, is comprised of two English songs, three Gaelic songs and eight blasts of tunes. The music you'll hear on this CD is indicative of the life and culture that has been shared with us on Cape Breton Island.
