Re-Jigged: Celebrating New Celtic Music & Dance
Ready to Re-Jig? Join us for our 2016 festival, October 21 - 23 : bigger, better and best of all, in downtown Dartmouth, Nova Scotia!
This year featuring:
Fusing Irish & Quebecois steps and tunes like you've never imagined!
Think trad - with attitude!
RE-JIGGED is all about learning, sharing and enjoying the best "new trad" Celtic music and dance. Here at Atlantic Canada's first and only new trad festival, we're creating tomorrow's traditions with workshops, master classes, sessions, our Friday evening Tune Makers: A Concert in the Round, our popular Saturday evening Gala Concert and Late-Night Ceilidh. And you're invited!
You'll love our spaces. Everything you'll want to see and do happens on Ochterloney Street in downtown Dartmouth. Our two venues are just minutes away from each other: Christ Church Hall (corner of Ocherloney and Dundas Streets) and First Baptist Church (corner of Ochterloney and Wentworth Streets) are both amazing acoustic halls, made for trad music and dance.
And thanks to you, we just keep on growing. Take a look!
