“A bit of French, a bit of Irish, a wee dram of Gaelic and a full helping of Cape Breton Scotch: this is a mighty powerful fiddle cocktail from Còig.” — FolkWorld

We welcome back one of our favorite traditional bands, Còig, after a one-season hiatus. Originally formed as a “dream team” of young Cape Breton musicians, Còig brings warmth, charm, and wicked traditional chops to the stage, with a dynamite double fiddle frontline featuring the amazing Chrissy Crowley and Rachel Davis, who are backed by the talented pianist Jason Roach and multi-instrumentalist Darren McMullen. They always put together such beautiful holiday programs for us, and this time, in addition to Christmas favorites, they’ll be performing material from their new release, Rove, which has recently been recognized with a 2018 East Coast Music Award, 2017 Canadian Folk Music Award, and Music Nova Scotia Award nomination.
