The Celtic supergroup Còig, of Nova Scotia, presents an evening of Celtic holiday music with lively instrumentals, stirring vocals and festive favorites from their Christmas albums, “Carols” and “Carols Too” beginning at 7 p.m. on Wednesday, Dec. 6, at 49 Franklin in Rumford.

An exceptional show from start to finish, Còig brings various influences into their Celtic holiday mix ranging from folk and classical, to swing, giving your favorite carols a fresh and original sound. The quartet features four accomplished multi-instrumentalists and award-winning musicians, Rachel Davis, Darren McMullen, and special guests Margie Beaton and Thierry Clouette. Celebrate the season in style with one of Atlantic Canada’s premiere Celtic supergroups as they take concert goers on a musical journey with their renditions of timeless Christmas classics, brimming instrumentals and high-energy original tunes.

“’Carols’ is exceptional, from start to finish. And, sure, it’s overall a Celtic set, but the band brings a multitude of influences to the music which not only keeps the whole thing sounding fresh and original but should also draw in some folks more partial to folk, classical, contemporary pop, and there’s even a little bit of swing. The musicianship and vocals are perfect, there’s a nice balance of instrumental and vocal pieces… . Hard to pick favorites, since it’s all so good, but the opener — ‘Carol Of The Celts’ — grabbed me when Còig shifted into high gear. And if ‘Swingle Jingle Bells’ doesn’t put a smile on your face, I think there might be something wrong with you. Just sayin’.” –
