What’s coming up in 2024

Unfortunately QuasiTrad has decided to not  run many of the regular events that were happening prior to the covid lockdowns.  For this year two regular jam sessions are happening: Celtic Jam and the Welcome Sessions.  Other celtic events around town include public jam sessions at the Last Jar Pub, some great annual festivals including the National Celtic Festival each June in Portarlington, and the Melbourne Scottish Fiddlers, a dynamic fiddle club open to all keen fiddlers.

Lost in the Groove 

Summer Vibes Dance

The Annual Tunes Camp

A heartfelt thankyou for the Quasitrad Quebec Fiddle Weekend. It was incredibly well-organised and artistically brilliant… and what a treat to be fed quality home-cooked food for five days. Thank you for inviting me as a caller for the contra dance. The event was fantastic! I will definitely be encouraging people to attend any future events.

Jeanette Mill

Dance Caller, Canberra

I have had the greatest time playing and learning traditional Québécois fiddle for the past 4-5 days! So much food, laughter, great company and story telling. I have learnt so much from these amazing talented musicians, Pascal and Yann! Thank you to everyone involved for making this the most amazing experience! Thank you for bringing a little piece of Quebec to Australia.

Jillian Condon

Violin Teacher, Melbourne

To be immersed for a weekend in Quebecois music and fiddling – taught by one of the foremost exponents of the style -was an unique and extraordinary experience. Pascal Gemme is amazing and a generous teacher, and the camp had such a friendly atmosphere. Thanks Judy, I’ll definitely be back next time!
