‘Còig are a folky force to be reckoned with.’ Songlines
Atlantic Canada’s powerhouse Còig has cemented its status as one of today’s most exciting North American Celtic groups. With a fiery Celtic style as its 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 a lot of non-traditional ways.
Còig’s like no other, thanks to the unique mix of four superb talents. 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 award-winning quartet are an unparalleled music force.
Còig’s latest album, Ashlar is full of surprises and flows from lively instru-mental sets to tender traditional ballads to fabulous covers, everything Còig is known for and then some.
