The Nordic Fiddlers Bloc with Qristina & Quinn Bachand
Holy smokes. This will be a rocking, rollicking night of roots music from all around the world - Celtic, Scandinavian, Bluegrass, Quebecois, Acadian, Classical... and god only knows what else - and I mean that in the very best way.

The Nordics have been with us before; for one of our more memorable Christmas Celtic shows in 2015, for a Burren Backroom Series just this past year, and several other area performances.  Canadian brother and sister duo, Qristina & Quinn Bachand, artfully meld heart-swelling, stomp and clap Celtic Roots with progressive Indie Folk, with results that are arresting, provocative, stimulating and thoroughly intoxicating.  From Canada's rugged and storied west coast, Quinn is part of the Jeremy Kittel trio and I saw him solo recently at Glasgow's Celtic Connections. Qrstina is fast gaining a reputation as one of the very best musicians in young roots-based music today.

Here are some examples, starting with the Nordic Fiddlers below.  

And then Quinn and Qristina...

The Burren Backroom series is now well established as one of the most sought-after boutique series of trad presentation in the world.  It has already created already dozens of memorable, intimate, informal presentations held in a truly atmospheric space which was founded by well-known traditional musicians Tommy McCarthy and Louise Costello in Davis Square, Somerville, Massachusetts.  

Hosted by Brian O'Donovan of A Celtic Sojourn on WGBH radio, these gatherings feature core performers from many aspects of traditional music as well as special guests, and conversations around the music.  As is the custom of the Burren, it is anticipated informal and dynamic post concert sessions will be a feature.

Tickets are $23 in advance, with a $5 discount for WGBH Members.  If you are a member, send an e-mail to and we will send you the code.

Seating is VERY limited and these events have been selling out, so get your tickets today!
