Hamilton Originals Cranky Celtic Christmas

Hamilton Originals is getting in the spirit – the Cranky Celtic Christmas spirit!

Why “Cranky” you ask? Because one of our guests is the witty, wacky, and whimsical Wendell Ferguson, master songwriter of all Christmas parodies, and gregarious guitar guru.

Why “Celtic” you wonder? Because our other guest is Scantily Plaid, featuring the racy, raucous, and red-headed Ruth Sutherland on the Celtic harp, and her musical partner, the daring, dynamic, and dangerously diverse Doug Feaver on the Celtic guitar.

Why “Christmas” you’re thinking? Hey, it’s happening on December 20th, so the timing seemed right.

Hamilton Originals Cranky Celtic Christmas promises to be a superb spectacle of special seasonal talent, featuring some of the greatest Christmas music you’ve never heard; but you’re gonna love, guaranteed or your money back!

Wendell Ferguson is a buffoon, a fool, a charlatan and a general nuisance…but he can play the guitar (a bit). He’s garnered 9 CCMA Awards, an OCPFA Lifetime Musician Award and was twice nominated for a JUNO. His CD, “Wendell Live! The Shit Hits the Fans!” was nominated for “Album of the Year” at the 2006 CCMA Awards. His CD, “Menage A Moi” won the ‘Instrumental Album of the Year’ at the 2010 Canadian Folk Music Awards. AND he was inducted into the Canadian Country Music Hall of Fame. Despite all this he still remains the same unapproachable snob he’s always been.

Scantily Plaid is the exciting and highly energetic Celtic/Canadian group from Hamilton, Ontario, comprised of Ruth Sutherland (vocals, Celtic harp, and percussion) and Doug Feaver (vocals, guitar, harmonica, and percussion). Their music is the vibrant and evocative fusion of the traditional mainstream Celtic style with rock and world music influences woven into every song.  Scantily Plaid delivers soul-stirring music with dynamics unparalleled anywhere!
