On Saturday the 19th of September Governors Pub & Eatery is proud to present the Barra MacNeils dual CD Release Party as part of the establishment’s grand re-opening celebration. The Barra MacNeils are celebrating the release of two new live recordings intended to represent both sides of what the Barra MacNeils bring to stages the world over. The two live CDs, In Concert and In Session, together cover the instrumental and vocal material the group performs in concerts regularly while also touching on lesser known material from their more formative years and more informal musical gatherings.
These two new live recordings are no exception and are a must have for any fan of their live shows. In Concert was recorded live over two consecutive nights at sold out concerts in Truro, Nova Scotia at the Marigold Cultural Centre. It features a sampling of the Barra MacNeils’ popular theatre and festival main stage show material. The CD touches on all the energies and emotions of the Barra MacNeils live concert experience.
In Session was recorded over a marathon afternoon and evening pub session at Govenors Pub & Eatery in Sydney, Nova Scotia. People can be heard singing and clapping along, raising a glass of good cheer while keeping their energy up for dancing with a sampling of the pub’s food menu. It was a magical event as the MacNeils entertained the crowd while playing what seemed to be effortlessly for hours on end.
