Celtic & Swing Guitar; Gypsy Jazz Fiddle
From the musical Bachand family from Victoria, BC, Quinn Bachand is a natural – throwing both body and soul into his music. From the early days of performing with his equally talented sister, Qristina, the then 11-year old wunderkind turned heads through his jaw-dropping abilities on acoustic guitar. Countless nominations and awards would follow the sibling powerhouse as they released 3 albums in 7 years, heavily focused on traditional Celtic roots music and making a name for it across the world stage. Their 2015 release, Little Hinges, reveals a restless spirit as Quinn contributes his mastery on over a dozen instruments, sings and plays an integral role in the studio as the pair take their traditional expertise to a bold new frontier – staking their claim with more inventive fare destined to enlarge their audience.
Described by Cape Breton fiddling sensation Ashley MacIsaac, with whom he’s toured across Canada and Australia, as “the best guitar player he’s ever performed with” and “the Young Lion of the Celtic Guitar” by Daniel Lapp, Quinn has toured and performed at major Celtic, Folk, Jazz and Gypsy Jazz festivals and concert venues in Canada, the United States, Europe and Australia.
