Ready to Re-Jig? Join us for our 2015 festival, October 23 - 24: bigger, better and best of all, in downtown Dartmouth, Nova Scotia!
We're currently finalizing our 2015 line-up, so stay tuned for details!
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 brand new 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 and First Baptist Church, both amazing acoustic halls, made for trad music and dance.
And thanks to you, we just keep on growing. Take a look!
