10 Years ago Natalie MacMaster sold out the CPAC, and she will again March 7, 2017.

The City of Caribou is proud to announce that the world renown fiddler, Natalie MacMaster, will return to the Caribou Performing Arts Center on March 7 to again entertain hundreds with an uplifting performance. Natalie will perform with Donnell Leahy, another award winning fiddler, as well as an incredible array of talented musicians, many of which are family members.
