Sunday November 4, 2018, 2pm
Connection Rd, Narracan, Victoria (near Moe – driving directions below!)
Tickets: $23 / $18 Kids under 16 are free.
Toe-tapping celtic music from French Canada and Australia, in the beautiful setting of Narracan Hall, Gippsland. Featuring Laura Risk (fiddle) and Rachel Aucoin (piano) from Quebec, the eclectic Stony Six band from South Gippsland, and the Quebec Fiddle Weekend faculty and participants. A concert unlike any other!
The Stony Six are a bunch of musicians hailing from South Gippsland, who together create a joyous and buoyant sound. Their influences are broad and the resulting sound is eclectic and marvellous. Utilising string, wind, sticks and vocal harmonies, The Stony Six recreate covers in new and surprising ways, as well as presenting their own originals.
The Quebec Fiddle Weekend annual camp is open to all players who enjoy the lively celtic music of French Canada, and this year’s teaching staff and students will bring you an array of irresistible, highly-danceable tunes for your afternoon’s enjoyment!
