The Gardeners Green Folk Club is having another house concert in Merville on Saturday, April 23 at 7 p.m. This time they’re featuring the four piece band, Quartete a Tete, from Vancouver.

Lynn McGown and Michael Pratt have an infectious love of singing that has delighted audiences in the city and beyond for 30 years.  They have played at the Vancouver Folk Music Festival four times, and various concerts and folk clubs throughout Canada and the British Isles.

Calling themselves Tete a Tete, they sing with a wonderful sense of fun, passion and harmonies both beautiful and unique. They created the Jericho Folk Club in 1995, and also their own concert series at Celtic Traditions, their Vancouver shop which is also a music school, where McGown teaches singing. They have a passionate belief in live acoustic music and they create a community in Vancouver where all are welcome to participate. Have a look at their website for more details: http://celtictraditions.ca

McGown is a native of Montreal and draws from her mother’s Quebecois heritage and her father’s Scottish roots, clogging or playing the bodhran as she sings.  Besides singing, Pratt plays concertina and fiddle and draws from his Irish roots and his involvement in the British Folk Revival in the 70s before immigrating to Canada.

They have recently formed an extended musical experience with two other fine musicians, which they call Quartete a Tete. The group includes master guitarist Craig McGregor and fiddler Vanessa Kayt.

These fabulous entertainers will perform a mix of traditional and contemporary music. Seating is limited, so reserve tickets at 337-5337 for $20 ($10 for children).
