Gardeners Green hosts house concert in Merville

Gardeners Green Folk Club in Merville is pleased to be hosting a house concert on Saturday April 21 with Qristina Bachand, who previously performed with her brother Quinn.

Bachand has recently been working on her solo career, and she has recently launched her debut album, Linger. She will be performing music from the album, as well as other traditional songs and tunes, accompanied by Charlie Gannon on guitar.

She plays a mix of inspired original compositions and traditional Irish, Old-Time American and French Canadian tunes; creating music that is at once moving and uplifting.

If you haven’t been to a house concert at Gardeners Green, you’ll find that the intimacy and ambience of being entertained “close up and personal” in a private home is a very special experience.

Tickets are $20, which includes hot drinks and an array of yummy treats. All proceeds go directly to the performer. Tickets must be purchased in advance, and you can either pick them up or get them by e-transfer. For more details, give us a ring at 250-337-5337.
