COIG
Sep 15 @ 7:30 pm

When the creative juices are flowing, there’s no holding back the talented quartet that makes up the Celtic supergroup Còig: Fiddler Chrissy Crowley, multi-instrumentalist Darren McMullen, piano player Jason Roach and Rachel Davis on fiddle, viola, vocals.

Còig’s music is a unique combination of influences that could only come from these four players. It’s traditional for sure, but it’s performed in a lot of non-traditional ways. “We all come from sort of a traditional background, but then we have different influences that we’re interested in,” explains fiddler and singer Rachel Davis. “Jason has a jazz degree, and listens to a lot of different music. Chrissy likes to dive into a lot of world music, Darren comes from a kind of Irish theme from playing around. More of the traditional Cape Breton music is really what I love, plus all the folk songs, so it’s an interesting mix.”

That leads to the other magic ingredient in Còig. It’s a band of fast friends, people that grew up together, played together, and knew each other way before they ever considered being in a band together. The best in trad music, in a non-traditional way. That’s Còig.

Darren McMullen – guitar, mandolin, mandola, banjo, bouzouki, whistles, flute, vocals
Rachel Davis – fiddle, viola, vocals
Jason Roach – piano
Chrissy Crowley – fiddle

XARA CHORAL THEATRE: RINGS THROUGH WATER
Sep 21 @ 7:30 pm

Rings Through Water is an interdisciplinary creation that uses ethereal choral singing, contemporary and traditional Indigenous dance, powerful text and theatrical presentation to tell three short stories.  

It’s a collaboration between five artists – three Indigenous and two Settlers. Their desire to overcome their own embodied prejudices, privilege, and pain is central to their artistic process and to the beautiful narratives of this show.

Depending on its form, water has the capacity to amplify sound, distort it, or mute it; how do we do the same as we navigate our relationship with this precious resource and one another? Together they speak for water, lift up the voices of its protectors, and amplify the voices of the missing and murdered  Indigenous women who have met their end in it. They also offer a reconciliation-based model for Indigenous and Settler collaboration.

  • Deantha Edmunds, Inuk poet & soprano
  • Lisa Nasson, Mi’kmaq dramaturge
  • Sarain Fox, Anishinaabe choreographer
  • Christina Murray, Settler choral conductor
