Celtic Tea Room

On Friday night, we spent our second delightful evening at the Celtic Tea Room in St. Ann’s Bay, Cape Breton! The audience was so warm and engaging, and it was great to have the chance to play a couple of sets with Paul Cranford at the end of the night. Delicious treats and beverages were served, and we were made most welcome by everyone at the church. We were so pleased to be invited back for our second year with this excellent summer series.

Deep in the Tangled Wood

We’re very happy to share with you our debut album “Deep in the Tangled Wood”! It is the culmination of two intensive and exciting years of playing together, and includes some of our favourite tune sets, a waltz by Sean Dempsey, an original song by Erin, some lesser-known O’Carolan tunes, and others. It is available here:https://raggedrobinmusic.bandcamp.com/releases. You can also pick one up at the Maritime Conservatory, at Cafe Cempoal, or at our belated CD release party which will be happening early in the new year…stay tuned!

We were so happy to be back for our second year at Tuesday Night Tunes! This free outdoor concert series runs throughout the summer, hosted by the Maritime Museum of the Atlantic. The weather cooperated, and the crowd was wonderful.
