Qristina & Quinn Bachand / Bio

With deep Asturian and Breton roots, Canadian-born Qristina & Quinn Bachand have quickly emerged at the top of the international Celtic music world, winning 2010 Top Traditional Group and 2011 Top Duo at the Irish Music Awards. Since 2009 the duo have also received three Canadian Folk Music Award nominations, a 2012 Western Canadian Music Award nomination for World Recording of the Year and four 2013 Vancouver Island Music Award nominations.

This powerhouse duo has a musical bond that only siblings can share. With a musical connection reminiscent of other Canadian family groups such as Leahy, The Barra MacNeils and The Rankins, audiences everywhere are quickly falling in love with Qristina & Quinn Bachand.

The hottest Celtic/Roots group to emerge from Canada's west coast, Qristina and Quinn are versatile and sublimely gifted at creating music that is fresh, exciting and fun. They can make a simple tune take on new dimensions. This spirit and skill is showcased perfectly in their two critically acclaimed albums, "Relative Minors" (2008) and "Family" (2011). Their new album "Little Hinges", scheduled for release in early 2015, will push the duo's artistic boundaries. Qristina & Quinn have moved far past their niche as Celtic artists thanks to their wide-ranging musical interests, which include folk, indie and jazz music.

Qristina and Quinn are experienced artists, having performed at major Folk and Celtic festivals across Canada, the United States and Europe, and have been featured on national and international print, radio and television media.
