Quinn Bachand & Friends Fiddle Concert & Family Square Dance
Sunday, March 19, 2023 / 7:00 pm
St. Matthias Anglican Church Hall, 600 Richmond Avenue, Victoria, BC V8S 3Y7
In 2017 Quinn Bachand, one of Canada’s most outstanding award winning young musicians, discovered lost archives of one of BC’s earliest fiddlers, James “Jimmy” Isnardy (1879-1978), a St’at’imc packer, rancher, barber and local musician living in the Cariboo. 19th century residents and miners taught Isnardy the region’s earliest repertoire.
For this special evening Quinn has invited various musical guests to join him for a concert set that will feature the tunes of James Isnardy. The concert will be followed by a fun family square dance. The dance will be taught and called by Doug Paterson, who will make the experience accessible for those without dance experience.
There will be a short intermission between the concert and dance, refreshments will be available for purchase which proceeds to be donated to a worthy cause.
