Brother-sister duo fuses Celtic, folk and jazz for concert in Chilliwack

Qristina and Quinn Bachand will be performing a matinee show at Tractorgrease Café

Sister-brother duo Qristina and Quinn Bachand will be making a stop in Chilliwack as part of their B.C. summer tour this Sunday at Tractorgrease Café.

The two have developed their own ‘voice,’ exploring various musical traditions, fusing old-time, Celtic, folk and jazz to create their distinctive sound.

With Qristina’s shimmering vocals and inspirational fiddling and Quinn’s old–soul mastery of all things stringed, they clearly hit the mark with the music industry earning multiple accolades including two Irish Music Awards: 2010 Top Traditional Group and 2011 Top Duo. They are also three-time Canadian Folk Music Awards nominees, and two-time Western Canadian Music Awards nominees.

With a healthy dose of Celtic and plenty of rootsy goodness, they engage traditional and contemporary listeners with jaw-dropping effect. They artfully meld heart-swelling, stomp and clap Celtic roots with indie folk, with results that are arresting, provocative, stimulating and thoroughly intoxicating.

Tractorgrease Cafe is one of a dozen stops on their B.C. summer tour. Qristina and Quinn Bachand will be performing a matinee show at Tractorgrease (48710 Chilliwack Lake Rd.) on Sunday, Aug. 11 at 1 p.m.

Tickets $15 and available at eventbrite.ca.
