For the first time in eight years Natalie MacMaster, known as Canada's Queen of the Fiddle is offering up a new album called Sketches.
MacMaster will be promoting her new music during a tour that will find her on the Prince George Playhouse stage on Wednesday, Oct. 23.
MacMaster has sold more than 300,000 albums and has been nominated and won several awards including Grammy and Juno awards, East Coast Music Association awards, five Canadian Country Music Association Fiddle of the Year awards, three honourary doctorates and she is also a member of the Order of Canada for her contribution to the music industry.
For inspiration the Celtic music star has drawn from her own life experience.
"It is a moment during my 47th year of life, my 37th year of fiddling, my 16th year of marriage and my 13th year of parenting," MacMaster said in press release. "It'll be a moment of joyous appreciation inspired by years of parenting, marriage, friendships, music, and life."
Sketches is a return to a solo sound resulting in a must-hear collection of traditional tunes and medleys mixed with new creations. The album sees MacMaster musically reflect on her life and career.
"I have something to say through my fiddle," she said.
