With a combined total of over 30 nominations and awards, each of Còig’s talented musicians have released their own successful solo albums, and have toured both at home and abroad before coming together as this exciting super group. Còig’s much anticipated debut album was released on June 10th, 2014. That album won Traditional/Roots Recording of the Year at Nova Scotia Music Week: the Canadian Folk Award; and the East Coast Music Award for the same category in 2015.
The new album will release on December 1 and will put a new spin on some very traditional tunes and songs. Featured are: The Wexford Carol; In the Bleak Midwinter; Jesu, Joy of Man's Desiring; Oh Holy Night; Have Yourself a Merry Little Christmas; and Swingle Bells.
