ONLINE: A Còig Christmas (Dec 3rd – 6th)

An update from Còig:

Thank you so much to everyone who purchased tickets to our Christmas show at The Carleton; we were amazed to see 3 sold out shows on the calendar. As we all know by now, current Covid restrictions make these shows impossible inside the venue. But we have a solution you just may want to check out.

The silver lining to having the shows cancelled is that we have a professionally filmed Christmas concert video! Due to our annual New England Christmas tour being cancelled months ago, we went into a theatre and filmed a Christmas show to offer our US fans online.  Video by Mark Westburg, and audio by everyone’s favourite recording engineer, Dave Gunning, we have a 70 minute Christmas concert waiting for you.

If you were inclined to turn a canceled “in-person” concert into a festive “at-home” concert, we would be happy to still bring you some festive songs and tunes this year.

While it’s heartbreaking to lose the chance to play for you in person, and see so many of our friends this year, hopefully we can still bring a little online “Christmas cheer” to you all.  Thanks again for your support, stay healthy, stay safe, and we wish you and yours a great holiday season!


And from The Carleton:

Còig’s annual show is a highlight of the holiday season here at The Carleton. We share your disappointment in not seeing Darren, Chrissy, and Rachel live this year. However, we are excited to offer this special holiday performance!

All live show ticketholders have been contacted.  However, the beauty of an online show is we can extend our reach.  $25 gets you the video link and password emailed on Thursday December 3.  Access remains valid until 11 pm Sunday December 6.

Celebrate with Còig from the comfort and safety of your own home.  The full cost of your ticket goes directly to support the band in these challenging times.

Còig is one of Atlantic Canada’s most exciting Celtic traditional groups made up of accomplished multi-instrumentalists, Chrissy Crowley, Rachel Davis and Darren McMullen. With the fiery Celtic high-energy style as its musical core, Còig easily shifts between century-old tunes of past generations to 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). With driving tunes, haunting songs and infectious energy, Còig is an unparalleled music force.
