Join us on Saturday Dec. 2 for a special Christmas show featuring Còig from Cape Breton, Nova Scotia at St. Andrew’s Presbyterian Church in Maxville.
Còig, one of Atlantic Canada’s premiere traditional groups, is an ensemble of East Coast musicians originally forming to promote the Celtic Colours International Festival. In one explosive coming together, what was once solo acts on stage has amalgamated into one electrifying super group, picked as Penguin Eggs magazine’s 2014 #1 New Discovery internationally. With the fiery Celtic style as its musical core, Còig easily shifts between century old tunes of past generations to original and contemporary compositions, featuring the band’s range of over a dozen instruments (vocals, fiddles, piano, guitar, banjo, mandolin, viola, bouzouki, whistles, and more). With driving tunes, haunting songs, and infectious energy, Còig is an unparalleled musical force.
Tickets available online, or by phone at (613) 402-1425. Tickets are also available to purchase locally at Home Hardware located at 15 Main Street, Maxville, Ontario.
