Brishen, Romany for ‘bringer of the storm’, is what Quinn Bachand, one of Canada’s most outstanding young musicians, and his band serve up with their original western and euro-gypsy swing homage.  They introduce a space where virtuosity meets vibe, leaving you with a sense of jubilance and nostalgia.   With understated mastery and intuition, the group dedicates itself to musicality and the root of trad jazz and swing with the goal of bridging the gap between early Western and Euro Swing.  Quinn Bachand’s fascination, respect and commitment to tradition is clearly audible, setting him apart from the rest with an effect that is awe-inspiring.

The current Brishen line up features Quinn Bachand on lead guitar, violin, banjo and vocals, Reuben Wier on rhythm guitar and vocals, Alan Mackie on upright bass and vocals, Peyton Pleninger on saxophone and Matt Pease on drums.
