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.

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.

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!
