Celtic band Còig returns to CCAC
The fiery Celtic style of Còig, who have sold out four consecutive holiday themed concerts, will open the 2017-18 Chocolate Church Arts Center performance season on Friday, Sept. 8 at 7:30 p.m.
These talented and enthusiastic musicians easily shift between century old tunes of past generations to original and contemporary compositions. Fiddler Chrissy Crowley joins Rachel Davis on fiddle, viola and vocals. Pianist Jason Roach possesses a style all his own, and an unparalleled intensity on the keys. And Darren McMullen commands guitar, mandolin, mandola, banjo, bouzouki, whistles, flute and vocals.
With driving tunes, haunting songs, and infectious energy, Còig is an unparalleled musical force. Irish music enthusiasts will enjoy the Gaelic spinning songs of these Cape Breton musicians. Much of the music of this region is Celtic in nature, but originates in the local area and celebrates the sea, seafaring, fishing and other primary industries. Còig is a treat for the ears of every audience they meet.
The band has been promoting its new album, “Rove” at concerts over the summer - listen for them! For more on the band, visit www.coig.ca
