With diverse musical talents and a bottomless pool of creativity, Quinn Bachand plays a range of styles that includes jazz and bluegrass, but it is his skill with Celtic music that is drawing the most attention to this young multi-instrumentalist. His virtuosic playing is more than eye-catching fret-board fireworks. A gifted and creative guitar player, Quinn adds a contemporary edge to traditional Celtic music. His unique harmonies, hard-driving strumming, inventive chord voicing and powerful rhythmic effects make even the most well-worn tunes seem new and exciting. An in-demand sideman, Quinn has also toured with fiddling icons Ashley MacIsaac and Natalie MacMaster.
