Yellowknife Evening” (1994)

Partly funded by the NWT Arts Council, their first album highlights the variety of music the group plays.  It received favourable reviews and is played across North America and even as far away from Yellowknife as New Zealand.



“The Spirit of Giving” (1995) 

Primarily featuring Yuletide music of a traditional nature, their second album also includes an original composition by Steve Goff - "Winter Jazz", as well as the title track, "Spirit of Giving"; a true tale composed by Dawn Lacey's brother, Norm Walker.  Listen to the tracks listed on the right to have an idea of what the album sounds like: 'Boar's Head Carol', featuring Steve Goff with chorus; 'Wassail Round', featuring the whole group; and 'Malpas Wassail', featuring Moira Cameron and special guest, Marilyn Morrison.



“Northern Remembrance” (2014)

Ceilidh Friends started singing during anti-war demos in the early 1990s.  They made this recording of war and anti-war songs after years of singing the material.  The CD features several classic anti-war songs, like Christmas in the Trenches by John McCutcheon and No Man's Land by Eric Bogle, as well as traditional ballads and songs from the front lines of the two World Wars.  The album's title track was written by Moira Cameron, and is also available as a video on YouTube.
