Join us on a creative journey exploring the roots music of cultures all over Europe and North America. We have played at the Celtic Colours International Festival, the Stan Rogers Folk Festival, the East Coast Music Awards, Nova Scotia Music Week, and other events and venues. Our second album is scheduled for release in Oct. 2018. Our debut album, First Flight, featuring music from Ireland, Scotland, the Maritimes, Quebec, France, Spain, Scandinavia and the Balkans, plus folk songs and original tunes, was nominated for a Music Nova Scotia Award and also for a 2014 East Coast Music Award for Traditional Instrumental Recording of the Year. It can be ordered at CDBaby and on iTunes. We are the house band for Halifax Contra Dances and play regularly for ceilis, ceilidhs, and more.
Papilio's second album, "Sociable Butterflies", is due for release in October 2018. Stay tuned for details.
