Coig – Celtic Holiday Concert
December 20 @ 7:30 pm
One of Atlantic Canada’s premiere traditional groups, 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). This holiday season they bring the best of a Celtic Christmas to the Opera House stage. With driving tunes, haunting songs, and infectious energy, Còig is an unparalleled musical force. With a combined total of over 30 nominations and awards, each of Còig’s talented musicians have released their own successful solo albums, and have toured both at home and abroad before coming together as this exciting super group. Their debut album “Five” was released in June, 2014 to rave reviews, and earned the band the 2014 Canadian Folk Music Award for Traditional Album of the Year, the Music Nova Scotia Award for Traditional/Roots Recording of the Year, and most recently, the 2015 East Coast Music Award for Roots/Traditional Group Recording of the Year. Their highly anticipated sophomore album, Rove, was released in June 2017.
