Lucy has been performing with the Barra MacNeils for 37 years. They come from a long tradition of Cape Breton music and dance that has been the foundation of creative pursuits over their musical career.

Alongside her brothers, she has travelled to Europe, Scotland, England, Ireland, the United States, Barbados, and throughout Canada from Fogo Island to Iqaluit.

In 2014 and 2017 Lucy was a special guest with Symphony Nova Scotia for their Rita MacNeil tribute concert, performing with conductor Scott MacMillan and The Men of the Deeps.

During the pandemic, which was a very quiet time for many, Lucy started working on a solo album-something she’d long wanted to do but the time never presented itself. She felt in those uncertain times as though she was watching a world that was going through immense change and upheaval and wanted to leave something behind as a reminder of her lifetime attachment to traditional music and song.
