Folk festival picks The Noisy Locomotive September 11, 2014 at 7:00pm On the free side, both Thursday and Friday evenings: COIG 8:00pm - one of Cape Breton’s most captivating young bands. They're an exciting ensemble consisting of five solo acts. Originally coming together for a promotional tour for the Celtic Colours Festival, the formation proved to be something special, and the group decided to continue to tour together as a band. Proving to be a serious force to be reckoned with in the traditional music scene with their driving tunes, haunting songs and infectious energy, Còig is a treat for the ears of every audience they meet. COIG are: Fiddlers Chrissy Crowley, Rachel Davis and Colin Grant; multi-instrumentalist Darren McMullen; and Jason Roach on piano. Chrissy Crowley 9:00 pm - As a Canadian fiddler with a firm foundation in the traditional music of Cape Breton and the irrepressible curiosity of an artist driven to create and discover, Chrissy Crowley is now bringing her music worldwide. She has performed throughout Canada, the United States, the UK, as well as Ireland, France, Cuba, and the Dominican Republic, captivating audiences with a talent that belies her youth. Her music explores a new direction; a path of fearless innovation that has earned Chrissy a 2013 Canadian Folk Music Award, a Top 20 Under 20 in Canada award, and numerous East Coast Music Association and Music Nova Scotia nominations. Chrissy’s new release is titled “Last Night’s Fun.” Sprag Session 11:00pm - Lingering somewhere amidst the rich, soulful roots of traditional Cape Breton music and the grooves of a thousand branches of rock and funk, Sprag Session has developed a unique style and repertoire of music with a dynamic and thoughtful mingling of beats and melodies from an extensive host of musical influences. Far from the awkward malaise of mohawked bagpipers and kilted punks, Sprag Session has created a kind of Celtic fusion that is as much Béla Fleck and the Flecktones and Frank Zappa as it is Ashley MacIsaac.
