This concert of young trad musicians featured the music of yesterday played by the musicians of tomorrow!

Forged at the Acadia Trad Festival, Cròga is a hot new Celtic band of unique characters from as far away as the wild shores of New Zealand and as close as Mount Desert Island. Their love for traditional Celtic music — and their irrepressible youthful passion — comes out in their new approach to the age-old traditions. In this performance they will play music from their new record, “The Tide Full In.” Fiddler Gus La Casse is the winner of the 2015 Acadia Trad Young Artist Award. Now age 16, Gus has recorded multiple records and has been performing around New England and wowing audiences as far away as Ireland.

 

Tickets $20 advance purchase / $25 at the door.
Online ticketing closes at 1PM on the day of performance. After 1PM, tickets may be purchased at the door (if available).

Kicking the Top Off the Box at the Acadia Trad school with this lively concert featuring Cróga, April Verch, Scott Macmillan & Colin Grant, and Lillian Chase

Irish band Cróga, forged at the Acadia Trad Festival, features musicians from New Zealand to Maine. Acadia Trad School’s 2017 Young Artist Award winner Lillian Chase, age 13, releases her first record at this performance. April Verch steps, sings, and fiddles with a fresh and feisty approach to deep North American traditions. Touring the world to share songs from her 11th album (The April Verch Anthology), Verch’s performances combine her delicate voice, energetic footwork, and stunning playing, a trifecta of talents she brings together simultaneously. Guitar and fiddle duo Scott Macmillan and Colin Grant represent the heart and soul of Cape Breton music.

 

Tickets $25 advance* / $30 at the door.
Online ticketing closes at 5PM on the day of performance. After 5PM, tickets may be purchased at the door (if available).

*Online ticket prices will include a $1.50 service fee.
