Quinn Bachand’s Brishen takes you on an inventive quest which, through its technical virtuosity, brings together a spellbinding range of musical history to reinvent the categories of swing jazz, pop and country, celebrating the music of the ‘30s, up to & including the ‘60s. They create a space where virtuosity meets vibe, leaving you with a sense of jubilance and nostalgia.

Brishen is the inspired outlet for Quinn Bachand’s passion of Western Swing, European Jazz, and early pop music. Quinn and his gifted ensemble (Reuben Wier on rhythm guitar and vocals, Alan Mackie on upright bass, Peyton Plenninger on saxophone and Matt Pease on drums) dedicate themselves to musicality and the roots of swing jazz with the goal of blurring the lines between traditional jazz, latter day pop and western swing. Quinn’s fascination and commitment to tradition is clearly audible, setting him apart from the rest with effects that are awe inspiring.

Binding together old pop with traditional jazz and western swing; Quinn's original compositions are heavily influenced by music from artists such as Bobby Vinton, Brenda Lee and The Ink Spots. Hinting at greats such as Bob Wills, Joe Venuti and Django Reinhardt.

Already well known in Celtic music circles as a top Celtic guitarist, Quinn and sister Qristina quickly rose to the top of the Celtic music world, winning two Irish Music Awards, receiving a multitude of national & international nominations and touring across Canada, the US, Europe and Australia.

John Jorgenson, claims that, “he has depth and maturity to match his unending virtuosity and aptitude on the guitar” while seasoned Celtic genre-bender Ashley MacIsaac notes, “I have yet to meet anyone that is more creative, musically expressive and technically skilled as Quinn Bachand and his unique abilities make him one of a kind." Quinn Bachand's Brishen has performed at major folk & jazz festivals in Canada & the US.
