The Black Swan Fiddlers return to the Zocalo Café on Saturday, Dec. 28.

Music starts at 7 and admission is by donation.

This performance marks the end of a successful year for this energetic Celtic ceilidh band.

You will hear traditional, foot-tapping Celtic jigs and reels, along with soulful Irish ballads. It’s traditional Celtic music at its best.  Our repertoire also includes a lively set of Quebecois reels and ballads.

The Black Swan Fiddlers consist of fiddlers Madelaine Guimond, Raven Lees and Mya Williamson, with Paul Gervais on guitar, Jeff Buttterworth on mandolin and vocals, and Michael Harrison on bass and vocals. David Stevenson keeps it all together on fiddle, flute and pennywhistle.

The Black Swan Fiddlers have been keeping the traditional Celtic music tradition alive and well in the Comox Valley for eight years.  The Black Swan Fiddlers are based at the Long and McQuade Music store, where we do our rehearsals and where we produced our first-ever CD, called the South Wind.

For more information, contact David Stevenson at 250-890-0297.
