DOWN-HOME, CELTIC FIDDLING RINGS TRUE FOR MACMASTER FANS

LA CROSSE, Wis.— What happens when fiddle meets bow is pure magic, according to critics and fans of international sensation Natalie MacMaster. Viterbo University NexStar Season fans will experience this during her performance at the Fine Arts Center Main Theatre on Wednesday, Nov. 13 at 7:30 p.m.

Energetic fiddling, lithe dancing, and impeccable timing are MacMaster’s hallmark. In her gifted hands, the fiddle becomes a masterful tool that’s redefining Celtic music. MacMaster’s effortless fiddling, executed with attitude, offers a danceable beat that will have you toe-tapping in no time. One of the crown jewels of the traditional Cape Breton fiddle scene, MacMaster step dances while fiddling, without dropping a single beat.

This 29-year-old talent from Nova Scotia has fiddled her way across stages throughout the world. Having played since she was 9, MacMaster is as comfortable fiddling before a full, classical orchestra, alone, or with her band, which features guitar, piano, bass, drums, and percussion.

Awarded the Canadian Country Music Award  for "Fiddler of the Year" in 1997, MacMaster has recorded several CDs and worked with the likes of The Rankin Family, Bruce Guthro, The Chieftains, and Joan Osborne.

Natalie MacMaster’s performance is sponsored by Centurytel and supported, in part, by a grant from the Wisconsin Arts Board with funds from the State of Wisconsin.

Tickets are $23/$17. To order, contact the Viterbo University Box Office at 608-796-3100.
