Kyle MacNeil is a fiddler, guitarist, vocalist, and mandolin player who has been performing with his siblings in the Barra MacNeils since he was a teenager. Growing up, Kyle was surrounded by music–his uncle is the well-known fiddler Carl MacKenzie, and his mother is Jean MacNeil, a talented stepdancer and lover of music. The MacNeil home was a frequent visiting place for such respected musicians as the fiddler Robert Stubbert, who had a profound influence on Kyle’s musical development. Kyle received formal training on violin from Professor James MacDonald of North Sydney and continued his studies at Mount Allison University, experiences  that helped him to develop the technical prowess that has made him so successful as a performer and an instructor.

Sheumas MacNeil, the eldest of six siblings who make up the Barra MacNeils, began playing piano at a very young age. He soon teamed up with his younger, fiddle playing brother Kyle and the duo performed regularly at local square dances. Together they set the stage for what is now the Barra MacNeils. Sheumas studied music at Mount Allison University where he received his Bachelor of Music Major in Pipe Organ.

Be prepared for a toe tapping, foot stomping good time when these two get together on stage and you just may have some guest entertainers helping them out.
