Còig members duo Rachel Davis & Darren McMullen celebrate the Halifax release of a new album – Home – at The Carleton on Wednesday, September 11th. Show time is 7 PM and tickets are $30 + HST.

Rachel and Darren have had the idea of doing a duo project for a long time, since before Còig took off, really. They just couldn’t ever fit it in with the band’s busy schedule and the solo work they were each involved with. But when the world-wide pandemic shut everything down for an unknown period of time, putting everyone’s plans on hold, some members of the band turned to new opportunities and, apart from one-off shows and the annual Christmas tour, Còig basically found itself on hiatus. That was the push that the project needed, as Rachel and Darren found themselves home together, and lots of time to experiment with material.

Rachel Davis and Darren McMullen’s debut duo album, Home, was released in May 2024.  Rachel and Darren are well-established and respected instrumentalists in the traditional music world, and their playing on this album certainly lives up to that reputation. But over the years, each has also gained recognition for their vocal abilities.  This album features their vocals as they take turns on lead and harmonies throughout the 11-track album, which is split about evenly between songs and instrumentals.  The result is a cohesive collection of music performed by some of the top musicians of our times.
