This young brother and sister have been described as “the best act to come along in the world of Celtic music since… well, since anyone you care to mention.” (Penguin Eggs Magazine, Canada), “nothing short of amazing” (Living Tradition Magazine, U.K.), and “a revelation” (Folkworld, USA).

Since 2009 Qristina and Quinn have received rave reviews from fans and media alike and wowed audiences across Canada, the U.S. and Europe.

Qristina and Quinn have just finished a successful two-week Home Routes (www.homeroutes.ca) tour of the Yukon and are looking forward to their second Home Routes Tour, one that will see them performing close to home, all around Vancouver Island and the Gulf Islands.
