Còig kicks off a massive tour tomorrow at Vancouver’s Rogue Folk Club
Chance’s are good you’re familiar with Còig.
The Cape Breton quartet has earned an impressive list of credits for their recordings, including a Canadian Folk Music Award, a Juno Award nomination and multiple East Coast Music Awards and Music Nova Scotia Awards.
It’s one of Atlantic Canada’s most exciting Celtic traditional groups made up of four accomplished multi-instrumentalists: Chrissy Crowley, Rachel Davis, Darren McMullen and Jason Roach. With the fiery Celtic high-energy style as its musical core, Còig easily shifts between century-old tunes of past generations and original and upbeat compositions, featuring the band’s range of over a dozen instruments (vocals, fiddles, piano, guitars, banjo, mandolin, viola, bouzouki, whistles, and more).
The band’s new album, Ashlar, features 10 original compositions, covers and traditional tunes that offer a fresh and unique mix of four different talents. From lively sets to tender trad ballads to fabulous covers, Ashlar is full of surprises. The band is writing more, singing more, and having more fun than ever – and now, you can catch them live!
Còig is kicking off a massive cross-Canada tour, tomorrow!
