Since their recording debut in 2014, Cape Breton quartet Còig has taken the traditional music scene in eastern Canada and abroad by storm. East Coast Music Award wins, JUNO Award nominations, a Canadian Folk Music Award, and more – the sky has been their only limit. Members Darren McMullen (things with strings, whistles, etc.), Rachel Davis (fiddle, vocals), Jason Roach (piano), and Chrissy Crowley (fiddle) mix varied influences to produce something greater than the sum of its parts, captivatingly intricate and delightfully infectious.
