Mar 24: Qristina and Quinn Bachand with opener Amelie Patterson
Qristina & Quinn Bachand have proven to be quintessential to Canadas contribution to the world stage, garnering a mantle-packing collection of awards and recognition that thrust them to the top of the international Celtic music world. Theyve won two Irish Music Awards, 2010 Top Traditional Group and 2011 Top Duo. Since 2009 Qristina & Quinn have also received a combined total of 16 nominations at the Canadian Folk Music Awards, the Western Canadian Music Awards and the Vancouver Island Music Awards.
Born on Canadas West Coast, with its signature embrace of experimentation and improvisation, Qristina & Quinn have developed their own voice, exploring various musical traditions, fusing styles such as Old-Time, Celtic, Folk and Jazz to create their own distinctive sound. Their music features a hint of grunge, a dash of noir, a healthy sprinkling of Celtic and a dollop of rootsy goodness, engaging contemporary listeners with jaw-dropping effect. While their performances speak to the heart of traditional roots music, they successfully introduce their own fresh new approach. They artfully meld heart-swelling, stomp and clap Celtic Roots with progressive Indie Folk, with results that are arresting, provocative, stimulating and thoroughly intoxicating.
