Stratford, ON (December 9, 2016) – For eight consecutive years, Rant Maggie Rant’s fans and friends have reunited in Stratford to celebrate the holiday season. This year’s Frost & Fire: A Celtic Christmas Celebration! concert will be held at Stratford’s Revival House. Concert time 8:00 pm on December 16, 2016.
“The show is a seasonal celebration of music, as well as a gathering place for friends, family and loved ones,” said Glen Dias, the band’s lead vocalist. “We realized that Frost & Fire has evolved into more of a community experience now.”
Rant Maggie Rant will be entertaining the audience with their distinctive rootsy Christmas tunes, ancient and traditional Celtic melodies, blazing jigs and reels, lesser known seasonal fare and new material from their recently released CD Latitude.
Based in Stratford, Ontario, Rant Maggie Rant showcases the talents of Lindsay Schindler (fiddle, background vocals) who also performs with the acclaimed Ontario folk trio Trent Severn; Glen Dias (lead vocals, recorders, percussion); and Barry James Payne (guitars, harmonica, bouzouki, background vocals). Joining them will be guest musicians Steve Clark (bass) and Rob Larose (percussion), who both hail from London, Ontario, as well as Stratford’s Rosanna Vito (harp) and Toronto’s Daev Clysdale (Irish whistle, Irish flute and accordion).
