Their champion pipers and award winning musicians and singers make them a crowd favorite at major Festivals and Concerts throughout North America. Their energetic performances receive great reviews, standing ovations and instant invitations to return wherever they perform. Along with Traditional Irish and Scottish tunes, MacTalla's original songs, arrangements and driving rhythms create an engaging and magical blend of the past and the present. In addition to headlining at major Festivals, Universities and Celtic events they've appeared on ABC and NBC TV, played for HBO and NYC’s Steinway Hall and are heard daily on radio stations throughout the world. They share the stage with Celtic greats Cherish the Ladies, Tommy Makem, Eileen Ivers, Clann An Drumma, Altan, Black 47, Clancy Tradition, Gaelic Storm, Glengarry Bhoys, Highland Rovers, Enter the Haggis and the Tannahill Weavers. And have performed along side the Tito Puente Big Band, Jon Faddis and Arturo Sandoval and have played command performances for Jose Feliciano, the Average White Band and Rolling Stones' Keith Richards.
