I noticed on the newswire yesterday that Donell Leahy and Natalie MacMaster have announced their engagement. Canadian Traditional Music fans will recognize these two as among the best musical talents in the nation.

Can you imagine what a blast their wedding reception will be? Leahy... a dynamite group and top recording artists... united with the fiddling family members from the MacMaster lineage! Wow!

Hey, George Seto! 'Any chance of you wielding some influence to get us a couple of invitations? ;-)

I wonder if Natalie's talented but flaky cousin will be there.

Hi Barry. I'll see Nat at the CD Launch tonight.

I don't know what "influence" I have. I can't get out of paying $25.00 to get INTO the launch.

What flaky cousin? All her relatives of whom I know are quite stable.

Or are you alluding to Wendy MacIsaac's cousin, Ashley? As far as I know, Natalie isn't related to him.

I thought that Ashley was Natalie's cousin.

Hi, how are ya?

Well, of coruse Natalie and Ashley are cousins. Down here in Cape Breton, we're all inbred. Someone here's who's not your cousin is probably a sibling (whether you knew it or not) or from away.

Fiddle playing is genetic, don't you know?

Well, we're all related in one way or another here. That is true to an extent.

Offspring of a Leahy-MacMaster union? Wow, they'd either be musical geniuses or would want absolutely nothing to do with the fiddle after hearing it since before they were born...

Anyway, here's hoping the happy couple will enjoy many years of wedded bliss.

I was taken aback when I tuned into "Live At Five" last night after a call from a relative telling me Nat was fiddling live. When I got there, the first thing I saw was that big old engagment ring.... a sad day indeed for many a Maritime lad. Not only is she the dirtiest fiddler in the world, she's the best lookin in the kitchen. Then to find out who the groom to be is !!! I just hope she can teach them Uppity Canucks some dirt ! (D'ough, d'ey're ne're so awful shabby at da catgut needder !)

Let's hope they spawn fiddlers at least half as good as they.... my, my, t'would be simply amazin !!!

I suppose there will have to be a group name change now.

Will it be "Leahy Plus One"? Umm... How 'bout "Natalie and the Outlaws"?

Wendy is Ashley's sister,and Donnell's sister Erin could give Natalie lessons as she might be the best Scotch fiddler in the whole wide world.

Wendy is NOT Ashley's sister. Sorry. Ashley's sister is Lisa MAcIsaac. She's a terrific player as well.

Wendy is Ashley's cousin. They grew up in houses next to each other.

Ah, George, my mother is a MacLean from Cape Breton, a tiny place near the causeway called Grand Anse . This thread has got me giggling as it reminds me of conversations my mom would have with my grandmother when she'd go home for a visit. My grandmother would try to bring my mom up to date on what had been going on, I would get completely lost with Mac's a Mc's and cousins.

That's right George,Lisa is Ashleys sister and she play's for Bruce Guthro when he plays in C.B. at least she used to,Bruce even stated on stage that she is a better player than Ashley,as far as he is concerned.
