Caladh Nua - pronc: Coll-ah Noo-Ah (meaning 'New Harbour' or 'New Haven') is a tightly-knit, vibrant and talented band with its origins deeply rooted in the south-eastern counties of Ireland. Comprising of five versatile musicians and singers playing a wide selection of instruments - from banjo to fiddle, guitar to bodhrán and tin whistle to button accordion - the band has captured the essential qualities of traditional Irish music and balanced them finely with an innovative contemporary styling.
Through a series of international tours and festivals across the globe, which saw the band take the stage in cities such as Paris, Vienna, Copenhagen, Berlin, Mumbai and Vancouver, and having been invited to play for the former Irish President, Mary McAleese, at her residence in Ireland, Caladh Nua has cast a uniquely captivating net of Irish music and song to an ever receptive and increasing worldwide audience.
With a long list of TV and Radio work under their belt, and two highly acclaimed albums already in the bag (Next Stop and Happy Days) Caladh Nua's musicians are as accomplished off-stage as they are on. Performing a vast repertoire of haunting songs and evocative tunes the band continues to lead their listeners on a musical escapade through a sound-scape of their own creation.

Sigh Kobayashi Memorial Bursary for the Arts/Spring Fling presents LORNE ELLIOTT in Concert
Bring out your spare funny bones! Lorne Elliott is set to send your giggles “madly off in all directions”.
With his barely tamed afro, his rubbery face and his miniature guitar, the Canadian musical comedian is the master of all that is silly, side-splitting and strange.
Combining dry humour with musical numbers and skits, Elliott is a shrewd observer of the behaviour of the Canadian human animal. Often self-deprecating, always silly and never profane, Elliott’s funny is family friendly.
Well known as the host of his own CBC Radio Comedy Series which went on for 11 seasons, Elliott has been performing professionally on stage for more than two decades. His ability to entertain is as keen as his wit.
Lorne has been featured on numerous Theatre Arts festivals, he is also an award-winning playwright and his plays are regularly produced across Canada.
Of his one-man performance reviewers have said :
"Unrelentingly hilarious", Ottawa Citizen.
"A genuine and talented nut-case", Halifax Daily News.
"His show runs the gamut from the sublime to the ridiculous, but all of it literally sucks laughter out of your face” Nfld Herald.
"Swift, original, quick-witted ... thinks on his feet", Silver Friedman of the New York city Original Improvisation.
