Danielle MacDonald

Music Teacher  Extraordinaire

Danielle, along with her sister Shellie are the driving force behind the East Coast Folk\Country band Hearts of Kin.

Well known for their soulful songwriting, the darling duo's style has been flavored by the early influences of Sheryl Crow, Jewel, The Chicks and the late great John Prine.

Recently reunited in their Cape Breton hometown, the sisters have wasted no time establishing the band as an up-and-coming force.  Already with several songs claiming #1 positions on East Coast radio charts, Hearts of Kin have earned invitations to showcase for the East Coast Music Awards, Nova Scotia Music Week, and the largest outdoor concert in Atlantic Canada, the Cavendish Beach Music Festival.

After sharing stages with names like Serena Ryder, Michelle Wright, and Lennie Gallant, the duo released their first full length album, "Beautiful Burn" on October 27th, 2023.
