Ashley MacIsaac & Quinn Bachand
We've had to ADD a SECOND show and this is it!!! An intimate evening of traditional foot-stompin' Cape Breton fiddle music, up close and personal, with Ashley MacIsaac, the 3X JUNO Award winning fiddler, who will be accompanied on guitar by 2X Irish Music Awards Winner Quinn Bachand.
Ashley MacIsaac needs no introduction. He is one of the most celebrated Canadian roots musicians of all time, having sold in excess of 500K albums, Ashley has garnered international acclaim by playing the fiddle in that hard-nosed, traditional Cape Breton style, while adding his own spin, mixing genres and updating Celtic music to appeal to a broader spectrum of fans.
With diverse musical talents and a bottomless pool of creativity, Quinn Bachand is recognized as the Young Lion of the Celtic guitar and Canada's top Celtic young guitarist. Although Quinn plays a range of styles that include jazz, gypsy jazz and bluegrass, it is his talents in the world of Celtic music that have drawn the most attention. A gifted and creative player, Quinn adds a contemporary edge to traditional Celtic music. His unique harmonies, hard-driving strumming, inventive chord voicing and powerful rhythmic effects make even the most well-worn tunes seem new and exciting.
This is an evening of traditional fiddle music you won't want to miss!
