Twenty-one year old Quinn Bachand has proven himself beyond integral to Canada’s contribution to the world stage. As one half of the Celtic Roots brother-and-sister talent-trust Qristina and Quinn Bachand, since their 2008 debut the pair have released 3 genre-busting albums to global acclaim and toured across North America, Europe and Australia performing at major Folk and Celtic festivals.
Launched in 2013, Quinn’s gyspy swing project, Brishen, has likewise turned heads to this master of musical styles and all things stringed, garnering him a mantle packing collection of awards and recognition, including 3 Western Canadian Music Award nominations and an unprecedented five nominations at the 2014 Canadian Folk Music Awards! Brishen, Romany for ‘bringer of the storm’, is what Quinn and his talented band (Reuben Wier on rhythm guitar and vocals, Alan Mackie on upright bass and vocals, Peyton Pleninger on saxophone and Matt Pease on drums) serve up with their original western and euro-gypsy swing homage. They introduce a space where virtuosity meets vibe, leaving you with a sense of jubilance and nostalgia. With understated mastery and intuition, the group dedicates itself to musicality and the root of trad jazz and swing with the goal of bridging the gap between early Western Swing and Euro Swing. Quinn Bachand’s fascination, respect and commitment to tradition is clearly audible, setting him apart from the rest with effects that are awe inspiring.
Quinn Bachand’s Brishen is touring across Canada this Summer in support of the new album, Blue Verdun, with performances at major folk and jazz festivals from Vancouver Island to Nova Scotia.
