Concert – Homeward Bound
This leg of our travels will take us on a musical journey from Calgary to the East Coast, and beyond. The ever popular Morrissey’s Private Stock will be back for a third go around. Filling out this ship’s entertainment roster are Erin’s Fancy and Get Reel.
Concert – This Side of the Road
SOLD OUT: Fresh off of our sold-out relaunch show, we’re excited to have the fantastic fiddlers, Jane and Kyle joining us for their western Canadian tour. After all we’re just off the highway, this side of the road as they pass through. Also joining us is a recently formed local trio, The Drowsie Maggies. Additionally, Get Reel will be back with a brand new set.
Concert – Ship of Fools
SOLD OUT – We’re relaunching the ship after three years – on April Fool’s Day and only two weeks after St. Paddy’s Day. We hope you’ll join us to welcome back Hazel Grey to the Celtic Folk stage. Na Seanachie will be taking the stage for the middle set and Get Reel is the opener.
Virtual Concert – Music & Mischief
Celtic Folk is excited to co-present this virtual concert. This is a first for us. Hang onto your hats … champion Scottish & multi-style fiddler Mari Black and Nova Scotia/Cape Breton fiddler & piano player extraordinaire Troy MacGillivray are about to team up for an unforgettable, shenanigan-ridden duo musical adventure!
Concert – Celtara (Cancelled)
Celtara. Details coming. Mark your calendar.
Concert – Whiskey in the Jar (Cancelled)
I’ve seen fiddler Scott Duncan around Calgary over the years. When we re-launched Celtic Folk, I knew we would have to have him out in some configuration for a show. When Delta Whiskey launched, I knew that was a perfect mix. Well, two years later, we have them slotted as our closing band.
Concert – Rum Ragged (Cancelled)
When we heard Rum Ragged is going to be in town and had a free night, we just had to get the lads in for a Calgary show. They will be joined by guests Dave Whitty and Morrissey’s Private Stock. You won’t want to miss this special event.
Concert – The Sea Bound Coast
We are excited to be heading into 2020 with the high energy of yet another Celtic Folk debut – The Nova Scotiables. Our middle set features two performers with a long Celtic Folk history, returning in a brand new key.
Concert – 10:30 in Newfoundland
Tune in on November 16th, at 7 pm in Calgary – 10:30 in Newfoundland. We are bringing back one of the bands that helped us launch the new Celtic Folk concert series back in April of 2018. The evening includes other wonderful musicians as well as (checks notes) some cello. It will be another great show.
Concert – From Cork to Calgary
The event is SOLD OUT! You don’t want to miss the launch of our 2019/20 Celtic Folk season. Irish folk singer, Pat Kelleher, is joining us on his Western Canadian tour. For the closing set, we welcome back On Irish Street – who will be joined by Émile Hooper. Check out the full descriptions below.
