Quinn Bachand’s Brishen | CD Release Concert @ First Church of Christ, Scientist
Jun 21 @ 7:30 pm
Quinn Bachand's Brishen | CD Release Concert @ First Church of Christ, Scientist

Brishen, Romany for ‘bringer of the storm’, is what 23 year old Quinn Bachand, one of Canada’s most outstanding young musicians, and his band serve up with their original western and euro-gypsy swing homage.

With a tight grasp on the music that embraces the swing tradition, Quinn Bachand’s Brishen takes audiences on an inventive quest which, through its technical virtuosity, brings together a spellbinding range of musical history to reinvent the categories of swing jazz, pop and country, celebrating the music of the ‘30s, up to and including the ‘60s.

Quinn Bachand’s Brishen creates a space where virtuosity meets vibe, leaving you with a sense of jubilance and nostalgia. The band has toured across Canada, the United States and Europe, performing at major folk, jazz and gypsy jazz festivals. They’ve been nominated for five Canadian Folk Music Awards, two Western Canadian Music Awards and in 2018 won an Independent Music Award in the Jazz category for their sophomore album, Blue Verdun. Their third, and much anticipated album, “Tunes in a Hotel Room” was released in Europe earlier this year this concert is the official Victoria release! This is a show no gypsy jazz and swing music fan should miss!
