BATH — Back by popular demand, the Chocolate Church Arts Center, 843 Washington St., will welcome the driving, vibrant sounds of Coig (pronounced “Ko-ig”) at a Christmas concert at 7:30 p.m. Sunday, Dec. 2. The concert will showcase new original material and Christmas favorites.

This exciting ensemble is one of Cape Breton’s most captivating bands. With driving tunes, haunting songs and infectious energy, Coig is an unparalleled musical force. These talented and enthusiastic musicians easily shift between century-old tunes of past generations to original and contemporary compositions, featuring the bands range of over a dozen instruments (vocals, fiddles, piano, guitar, banjo, mandolin, viola, bouzouki, whistles and more). Much of the music of the Cape Breton region is Celtic in nature, but originates in the local area and celebrates the sea, seafaring, fishing and other primary industries.

Fiddler Chrissy Crowley joins Rachel Davis on fiddle, viola and vocals. Pianist Jason Roach offers an unparalleled intensity on the keys, while Darren McMullen commands guitar, mandolin, mandola, banjo, bouzouki, whistles, flute and vocals.

Tickets are $28 in advance and $32 at the door. Tickets are available online at www.chocolatechurcharts.org or by calling the box office at 207-442-8455.
