Rita MacNeil

Composer and Lyricist

Big Pond, Nova Scotia, is the home of popular Canadian singer-songwriter Rita MacNeil. In a writing, performing and recording career that spans several decades, Rita MacNeil established herself with her Gemini award-winning television variety show Rita & Friends, and with her widely-publicized appearances with the Men of the Deeps, a choir of Cape Breton coal miners. Her lyrical tunes are beautifully matched to stories and sentiments that come directly from the heart.

Christmas music and traditions play an important role in Rita MacNeil’s sensibilities and creative output. Her career reached a pinnacle in this genre with her CBC television Christmas special Once Upon A Christmas, which broke records for drawing an estimated audience of more than two million viewers. One of her best-loved Christmas Ballads – This Season Will Never Grow Old – is from her first Christmas album. Its closing refrain “… thank goodness this season will never grow old…” neatly brings together the anticipation, warmth, and satisfaction derived from Christmas traditions wherever they are celebrated.
