FEBRUARY 1st & 2nd, 2013
The Mid-Winter Ceilidh is a full night of great entertainment, including a performance by the host band, The City of Regina Pipe Band, a fun competition to choose THE CHAMPION HIGHLANDER and much more! Last year's Ceilidh SOLD OUT and we turned away a number of VERY disappointed people, so be sure to get your tickets early! They are available now on the web site, or in early January in the ticket locations.
This year's Ceilidh [Saturday, 8pm] is going to feature an old friend to the Ceilidh, and one of North America's most beloved performers: TROY MACGILLIVRAY of Antigonish, Nova Scotia, along with a group of performing friends featuring Jake Charron from Ontario on guitar and piano, fiddlers Gordon Stobbe from Nova Scotia, and Karrnnel Sawitsky & JJ Guy from Saskatchewan, bassist Daniel Koulack from Manitoba and Sarah Robinson, an Ottawa Valley stepdancer.
See more about the performers.
Tickets will be available at several Regina locations. You can get them at Bach & Beyond [Golden Mile Plaza] , Cobb Swanson Music [13th Avenue], Magpie's Kitchen [South Albert Street] and also order them ONLINE right up to January 28tht using PayPal or Visa/Mastercard.
