The Gardeners Green Folk Club in Merville will host three talented young musicians who play traditional Irish music in a house concert on Friday, March 2 at 7:30 p.m.

Get in the mood for St. Patrick's Day by joining an evening of Celtic.

With three Canadian Folk Music Award nominations, three Irish Music Award nominations and two Irish Music Award wins for Top Traditional Group and Top Duo, all since 2009, Qristina and Quinn Bachand are quickly becoming two of the most important young musicians in the Celtic music world. Twenty-one year old Qristina is a beautiful singer and mistress of the fiddle. Despite his age, Qristina's 15-year-old brother Quinn is one of the most gifted and creative Celtic guitar players today.

They are joined on this tour by another young award-winning musician, Celtic flute and uillean pipes player Zac Leger. Check out Qristina and Quinn's website www.qbachand.com for more information about these very special performers, and an internet search will provide videos of all three in performance.

Tickets are $20 (children $10) and available by reservation only. Being a house concert, only a limited number of tickets will be available, so if you want to attend, let them know as soon as possible in order to avoid disappointment.

Tickets include hot drinks and a bountiful dessert buffet. For details and to reserve tickets, give us a ring at 250-337-5337.
