Multiple award winning symbiotic brother and sister talent-trust, Qristina and Quinn Bachand, bring their healthy sprinkling of Celtic, a dash of noir, and a dollop of rootsy goodness to Gooderham's idyllic Tamarack Lodge & Art Centre, Aug 16 (7:30pm, $25 adv/$28, 1003 English Circle | 905-372-2210 info@tamaracklodge.ca). Qristina & Quinn have proven to be quinn-tessential to Canada's contribution to the world stage, garnering a mantle-packing collection of awards and recognition that thrust them to the top of the international Celtic music world. With Qristina's shimmering vocals and inspirational fiddling and teen Quinn's old–soul mastery of all things stringed, this brother and sister act clearly hits the mark, earning accolades and international touring opportunities with the likes of Ashley MacIsaac and Natalie MacMaster. The duo won Top Traditional Group and Top Duo at the Irish Music Awards, a combined 8 nominations at the Canadian Folk Music Awards, and finalist position for Quinn as "Emerging Artist" at Canada's Walk Of Fame. Their new CD Little Hinges also garnered a nomination at the Western Canadian Music Awards for Roots Duo/Group Recording of the Year! Undoubtedly two of the most outstanding young musicians to emerge from Canada, west coasters Qristina and Quinn Bachand have a musical bond that only siblings can share, with a musical connection reminiscent of other Canadian family groups such as Leahy, The Barra MacNeils and The Rankins.

Video - Toxic Trespass
Location: Your Home
Raising awareness of the connection between your children�s health and our environment. Book a casual in home video showing for your friends. This is not a sales event. As a courtesy to attendees this is a no scent event (includes perfumes, personal care and laundry scents). In Toxic Trespass, intrepid filmmaker Barri Cohen launches an investigation into the effects of the chemical soup around us. She starts with her 10-year-old daughter, whose blood carries carcinogens like benzene and the long-banned DDT. Then, Cohen heads out to Windsor and Sarnia: Canadian toxic hotspots, with startling clusters of deadly diseases. The filmmaker journeys into toxic nightmares all too common in industrialized countries. She meets passionate activists working for positive change, along with doctors and scientists who see evidence of links between environmental pollution and health problems. And she learns how quickly barriers can go up sometimes, when authorities are questioned about the connection between toxins and serious health problems. This film is essential viewing for anyone concerned about the effects of pollutants on our � and our children�s � very DNA.
