Fiery Folk for Bonfire Night

Canada’s Còig have cemented their status as one of today’s most exciting North American folk groups. With a fiery Celtic style at it’s musical core, Còig offers a fresh and exhilarating mix of traditional tunes, lively instrumentals and contemporary songs performed on over a dozen instruments (vocals, fiddles, guitar, banjo, mandolin, viola, bouzouki, whistles, and more) in many non-traditional ways.

Featuring the fiddling and step-dancing duo of Chrissy Crowley and Rachel Davis, and the musical musings of multi-instrumentalist Darren McMullen, and Zakk Cormier on guitar and driving rhythms on Acadian foot-percussion, the quartet have collected a mantle of awards for their four previous recordings, including a Canadian Folk Music Award, a JUNO nomination and multiple East Coast Music Awards.

Còig’s latest album, ‘Ashlar’ flows from lively instrumental sets to tender traditional ballads to fabulous covers. ‘Ashlar’ debuted at No.1 on the World iTunes chart and has been recognized with a 2020 Canadian Folk Music Award (Traditional singer, Rachel Davis), East Coast Music Award and Music Nova Scotia Award nomination for Roots Traditional Recording of the Year.

Còig play The Apex in Bury St Edmunds on Friday 5 November at 7.30pm. Tickets are available from www.theapex.co.uk or 01284 758 000.
