Event Description

We hope you'll join us for a wonderful evening of music and dance! The evening will start with a short concert featuring "Q" (Bachand) along with several invited musical guests. After a brief intermission, we will enjoy a fun all-ages square dance with caller Galen Armstrong teaching and calling the dances! No experience or partner is required!

Non-binary west-coast artist 'Q' , has been celebrated in the Canadian and International Celtic music scene as one half of the powerhouse duo Qristina & Quinn Bachand. Known for their powerful fiddle, captivating vocals and their infectious energy, their love of Folk and Celtic music has always been at the forefront as they wow audiences with spirited performances that showcase their fiddle & vocal talents as well as their love of folk songs and story-sharing.

For over 15 years Q has graced stages across Canada, the United States and Europe, earning numerous nominations and winning multiple awards including two Irish Music Awards (Top Duo and Top Traditional Group). More recently Q has grown into their (non-binary) gender identity and life's purpose & are singing rebel ballads and folk songs (acapella & self-accompanied), interspersed with rip-roaring fiddle tunes to help heal the soul. Their sets will equally inspire as they will bring you to tears or have you clapping along (& stomping your feet) !

Although they have a background in classical violin, it's their fiddle skills that have always shone, their beautiful tone and passionate delivery. After years as a successful touring musician, Q completed an MA in Traditional Irish Music Performance at the University of Limerick, and as some of you know, Q also holds an MSc in Infectious Diseases & Public Health from VU Amsterdam; for which they lived and conducted research in Kasese District, Uganda.

After many years living abroad, in Amsterdam and Montreal, Q made their way back to hometown Victoria. It's always a pleasure seeing our homegrown talent perform, we hope you'll join us in supporting this outstanding artist!

There will be a short intermission between the concert and dance, the concession will be open for the rest of the night. Refreshments will be available for purchase with proceeds going to support Doctors Without Borders.

Tickets are available at Munro's Books on Government Street, as well as directly through us by calling Marie (250) 812-7978. Online tickets can be purchased on our website through Eventbrite. Tickets are LIMITED.
