Join Rant Maggie Rant as they present their 9th Annual Frost & Fire Christmas Show. Recipients of the 2013 Jack Richardson Award for Folk Roots/Traditional and 2015 International Artist of the Year at the Australian Celtic Music Awards, Rant Maggie Rant took their Christmas show out of province for the first time last year to Alberta to welcome ears.
Lindsay Schindler, Glen Dias & Barry James Payne will be joined by their longtime and regular guest support musicians, Londoners Rob Larose (percussion) & Steve Clark (bass) and Toronto’s Daev Clysdale (whistles/accordion) for a beautiful Christmas show, which has become a bit of a London tradition. Lindsay and Barry also hail from London, while still residing in the area, Dorchester and Stratford respectively.
This band was one of the hits of this summer’s Home County Music & Art Festival where they performed on the Saturday night Main Stage to enthusiastic response.
Rant Maggie Rant incorporates all sorts of instruments and styles, mixing traditional fiddles, whistles and guitars, with vocal harmonies and an array of percussion, driving exotic Latin rhythms, African beats, with a foray into Mediterranean instrumentation. Folk, rock, trad, jazz and Celtic fuse together on their regular repertoire and seasonal gems you may or may not have heard.
The band is engaging, entertaining, musically unique and tight. This is one of the best Christmas concerts you will experience. Don’t miss it!
