Qristina, Quinn, and Marie Bachand

The Bachands are from Victoria (British Columbia) and attended the St. Ann’s festival last year as part of a YMCA-sponsored youth exchange program between the Cape Breton Fiddlers’ Association youth members and their BC counterparts in the Victoria Fiddle Society. They returned this year and Qristina and Quinn played at other venues during their stay, as well as taking active rôles in this festival’s concerts.
