Bagpipes Meet Rock and Roll

The Johnny McCuaig Band, now known as the Arcana Kings, were at the Dekker Centre Nov. 20 as part of an Organization of Saskatchewan Arts Councils tour. The Regina-based band is described as mixing “traditional Canadian east coast jigs with the modern power of radio rock music.” Among the instruments played are the bagpipes. News-Optimist staff member Maureen Charpentier attended on the company’s behalf, coming back to give us a glowing review of the show. The music was great and everyone had fun. She reckons this is a band we will continue to hear more about and anyone who has the chance should take in one of their shows. They released a new album in October, titled Lions As Ravens.
