Cod Gone Wild and The Okanagan Celtic Choir – Sunday, September 25th, 2:00 pm. Rain or Shine!
What do you get when you combine a tender-hearted singer songwriter from Newfoundland, a larger than life Albertan drummer raised in Saudi Arabia, an internationally renowned fiddling BC beauty, and an effortlessly cool Japanese Canadian bass player? None other than Cod Gone Wild.
Based out of BC’s Okanagan Valley since 2009, this Celtic inspired band is focused on giving traditional music a modern edge. Blending the varied talents of four musicians whose classical, folk and rock backgrounds fuse together to create a dynamic and unique sound that instantly connects and resonates with audiences. Through their uplifting energy and remarkable stage presence, they weave together a tapestry of tales that evoke a nostalgic experience of days gone by. Booking everything from weddings to festivals, house concerts to theatres, their music and performance is diverse and adaptable to any size venue or demographic.
Having independently recorded and produced three albums to date that primarily feature traditional tunes (Cod Gone Wild, The Traveler and Battered and Fried), they have an increasing amount of original material that has come with their maturity as musicians, songwriters and performers that we can expect to hear on future albums.
Cod Gone Wild is taking part in the 2016 Caetani Summer Music Series on September 25th, 2016, from 2:00 pm to 4:00 pm at the Caetani Cultural Centre. Opening up the show will be the Okanagan Celtic Choir, under the direction of Cod Gone Wild’s Andrew Mercer. Bring you blankets, folding chairs, and a picnic to enjoy a relaxing evening of music presented by Cod Gone Wild. A selection of refreshments will be available for purchase and admission will be by donation ($10 recommended donation for adults and $5 recommended donation for members and kids).
