Event description

Description

Born on Canada’s West Coast, with its signature embrace of experimentation and improvisation, fiddler & singer Qristina Brooke (aka Qristina Bachand) was always encouraged to find her own ‘voice’. She grew up exploring various musical traditions; all of which inevitably influenced her distinctive sound. She plays a mix of inspired original compositions and traditional Irish, Old-Time American and French Canadian tunes; creating music that is at once moving and uplifting. Simply put: Qristina's music is heartfelt and soulful and may just tug at your heartstrings.

As one-half of the award-winning Canadian Celtic Roots duo ‘Qristina & Quinn Bachand’, Qristina has performed across Canada, the US and Europe at major folk and Celtic festivals; garnering a mantle-packing collection of awards and recognition on their way to the top of the international Celtic music world.

Known for her expressive fiddling and smooth, heartfelt vocals, Qristina is a charismatic performer clearly at ease on the stage. Her fiddle skills shine with beautiful tone and passionate delivery and her honey sweet vocals caress the soul. Her contagious energy and love of Folk and Celtic music is always at the forefront as she captivates her audiences with moving, intimate performances. While still mindful of its origins, Qristina has the ability to add elements that bring traditional music beyond its roots and into the 21st century.

Originally from Victoria, BC, Qristina was living in Limerick, Ireland, for the past two years while she earned her MA in Traditional Irish Music Performance, but has since relocated to Montreal, QC.

PLEASE NOTE THIS IS A HOUSE CONCERT, TAKING PACE AT THE IREDALE'S HOME AT 17 CAMBRIDGE STREET. DOORS OPEN AT 7 PM, THE CONCERT STARTS AT 7:30 PM
