Event description

Description

Brishen, Romany for ‘bringer of the storm’, is what 23 year old Quinn Bachand, one of Canada’s most outstanding young musicians, and his band serve up with their original western and euro-gypsy swing homage. With a tight grasp on the music that embraces the swing tradition, Quinn Bachand’s Brishen takes audiences on an inventive quest which, through its technical virtuosity, brings together a spellbinding range of musical history to reinvent the categories of swing jazz, pop and country, celebrating the music of the ‘30s, up to and including the ‘60s. Quinn Bachand’s Brishen creates a space where virtuosity meets vibe, leaving you with a sense of jubilance and nostalgia. The band has toured across Canada, the United States and Europe, performing at major folk, jazz and gypsy jazz festivals. They’ve been nominated for five Canadian Folk Music Awards, two Western Canadian Music Awards and in 2018 won an Independent Music Award in the Jazz category for their sophomore album, Blue Verdun. Their third, and much anticipated album, “Tunes in a Hotel Room” was released in Europe earlier this year and will have it's official Canadian release this summer!

Here's what Quinn has to say about the recording: In the midst of planning this record and a release in January I got phone call from Berklee College of Music telling me that there had been a major fire and I would be evacuated from my residence. I was currently on tour with Grammy nominated Kittel & Co. and there was nothing I could do but ask my friend Josh Litton to pick up a few of my things after the fire… my violin, electric guitar and oud were in the room along with all my recording gear. When I returned my room was destroyed by the fire department, but my instruments were amazingly intact (but smelled and still smell like smoke.) We were very fortunately put up at the Sheraton in Back Bay, Boston. This record was made in room 737 of the hotel with old analog gear and some of Berklee's top jazz musicians.

We hope you'll come and share with us what is surely going to be an epic night of music!
