ECMA winners Còig are playing a virtual holiday show for folks on the WEST coast
East Coast Music Award winner Còig is bringing its annual dose of Christmas cheer to Vancouver’s Rogue Folk Club on Dec 19 – and to the rest of the world via the power of streaming (roguefolk.bc.ca for more details).
We are excited to present Còig’s virtual Christmas concert, with an interview with the band in advance of the performance. The concert will feature lively instrumentals, stirring vocals, original tunes, and festive favourites – many from Còig’s holiday albums, Carols Too (2019) and Carols (2015).
The musicians are Chrissy Crowley (fiddle, step-dancing), Rachel Davis (vocals, fiddle, viola, step-dancing), Darren McMullen (guitar, mandolin, mandola, banjo, bouzouki, whistles, piano, vocals) and Zakk Cormier (guitar, fiddle, and Acadian foot percussion).
Over the last six years, Còig has had great success presenting Christmas-themed shows to sold-out audiences in theatres, community halls, churches and listening venues of up to 1,000 concert goers. The group has established a solid and loyal audience base, always delivering an exceptional live show, bringing various influences to its Celtic holiday mix, from folk to classical to swing, and offering a fresh and original sound that is uniquely that of Còig.
The show is one of two virtual holiday concerts the Rogue is bringing into your home this Christmas. The previous night, it’s presenting its annual holiday Cool Yule bash with Van Django.
