The O'Schraves are coming to Merville.

Folk club season ends with O’Schraves

Last house concert of the season in Merville on July 15

Gardeners Green Folk Club will be hosting its last house concert of the season in Merville on Wednesday July 15 – and the season is concluding on a high note.

The Gardeners welcome the O’Schraves, a family band of five members, combining three of Ontario’s finest traditional music families, the O’Gormans, the Schryers, and the Lefebvres.

Julie Schryer (Pierre Schryer Band, Brian Pickell Band) on piano and Pat O’Gorman (Rare Air, The Windbags, Brian Pickell Band) on bagpipes, Irish flute and tin whistle, are ably assisted by the younger members of the family: Benoit, 20, on fiddle, tin whistle and vocals;  Zach, 24, on his own handmade guitar as well as cello, tin whistle, piano and vocals; and Aine, 12, on fiddle, stepdancing, tin whistle and vocals.

The O’Schraves entertain concert-goers with their captivating traditional Canadian, Irish and Scottish music, along with modern tunes and songs, some by members of the family. Their concerts appeal to all ages and present an inspiring variety of music and instrumentation with skill, joy and good humour.

The O’Schraves have also played for regular dances in their home region of Ontario for the last eight years, and in 2014 the group toured the southern U.S. playing for contra dances. (Unfortunately the only dancing we’ll have room for at Gardeners Green is in your seat.) So come join us for a toe-tapping great concert on the 15th.

Tickets are $20, available by e-transfer or you can pick them up in person. Tickets include hot drinks and a lovely spread of desserts.   As this is a house concert, ticket numbers are limited.  For more info and tickets, call 250-337-5337.
