Live - Natalie McMasters - Double CD

Live - Natalie McMasters - Double CD


LIVE is a double-CD, released in May 2002. It features the full-band sound as well as the traditional sounds of a Cape Breton square dance.  

Disc one is representative of her high-powered, full band, musically progressive show, which has a reputation of bringing down houses no matter the venue. This collection was culled from the live recording of a concert at The Living Arts Center, in Mississauga, Ontario, Canada; which also served as the foundation for her nationally broadcast TV special. 

Disc two features Natalie in her own "backyard" playing for a very traditional Cape Breton style square dance at the Glencoe Mills hall, on a long dirt road deep in the wooded foot hills of Cape Breton near her home of Troy. The CD is a window into the age-old traditions that were the foundation of everything Natalie has since become. Natalie's double live CD packs a very well rounded and diverse musical punch, featuring something for everyone; not only fans of great fiddle playing but any fan of fantastic music.

"Whether she's fronting a seven-piece show band or leading an acoustic trio, Natalie MacMaster stamps her authority on the music with a firm bow"
- Alex Monaghan, Folk World

"This new double CD captures both sides of the talented musician"
- Sandy MacDonald, Halifax Daily News
