Coig’s music is a unique combination of influences that comes from the four band members. It’s traditional for sure, but it’s performed in many non-traditional ways. “We all come from a traditional background, but then we have different influences that we’re interested in” explains fiddler and singer Rachel Davis. “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 its an interesting mix”
This all leads to the other magic ingredient in Coig. It’s a band of fast friends, people who grew up together, played together and knew each other before they ever considered being in a band together.
The best trad. music in a non-traditional way – Thats Coig!
