When it comes to getting an audience off their seats and to the dance floor - there are few bands better than The Barra MacNeils.

This family based band from Cape Breton, Nova Scotia, has been touring the world for over twenty years with their unique brand of Celtic music. So, they were the perfect choice to headline the closing party at the 2011 Scotiabank Blue Nose Marathon race weekend in Halifax. Thousands of people participated in the event, running from five Ks. to a full marathon, and by Sunday night - they were exhilarated and exhausted. But, the minute the Barra MacNeil's hit the stage - they found new energy and danced the night away.
