Concert – Rum Ragged

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 – Whiskey in the Jar

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.
