A Celtic Spring Fling is making a stop in Digby during their Maritime tour.

A mix of Cassie and Maggie MacDonald from Antigonish and The Paul McKenna band from Glasgow, Scotland will perform on April 18.

“They have a really wide range of traditional music prepared,” said Rev. Alex Constable of the Grace United Church of Canada in Digby.

The show features fiddles, pipes, bodrhan, step dancing singing and more.

The show will be held at Grace United Church at 7:30.

McKenna has heard there will be some mystery guests appearing as well as the two groups.

“Were happy to be a part of helping share and provide more cultural access to Digby and Digby County.”

The church held a concert in December that sold out, the Maritime Christmas tour of 2017 that featured Tomato Tomato & Heather Rankin.

The team that did lighting and sound for the show in December, will also be doing lighting and sound for the show later this month.

“The church was lit up like nothing I’ve seen before. It was beautiful,” Constable said.

‘A Celtic Spring Fling is a celebration of not only the music but the stories of immigration through The Maritimes,” said organizer Shelley Chase, in a press release.

The show will play in Miramichi, Sackville, Charlottetown, Dartmouth, Springhill, Lunenburg, Digby, Saint John, Fredericton and Pictou.
