CHARLOTTETOWN – Celtic music fans are raving about one of Cape Breton Island's newest musical acts, Còig, pronounced 'ko-ig' which is Gaelic for 'five'.

Cape Breton supergroup Còig will be releasing their debut album in P.E.I. on Tuesday, June 17, in the Pourhouse, second level of the Old Triangle Irish Alehouse at 89 University Ave. in Charlottetown at 7:30 p.m. All ages are welcome with tickets available in advance at the Old Triangle.

On Tuesday, June 17, P.E.I. will have the chance to find out what all the fuss is about as they launch their debut album in the Pourhouse, second level of the Old Triangle Irish Alehouse at 89 University Avenue in Charlottetown at 7:30 p.m. 

Together these five artists: Chrissy Crowley, Jason Roach, Rachel Davis, Darren MacMullen and Colin Grant, have become one of Cape Breton’s most captivating young bands. Originally coming together for a promotional tour for the Celtic Colours International 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 described as a treat for the ears.

Busy solo schedules make Còig appearances, like next week’s Charlottetown one, quite rare. Tickets are available in advance at a discounted rate at the Old Triangle or can be purchased at the door on the night of the show. All ages are welcome but those under 19 years of age should be accompanied by a parent.
