Blackthorn is Vancouver’s longest-running Celtic group. Their extensive repertoire is steeped in the musical traditions of Scotland and Ireland as well as the folk music of English and French Canada. They are famed for their refreshing diversity of characters inside the group’s polished and solid sound, which they use to create sweet harmonies with complex instrumentation. Blackthorn is no stranger to the shores of Steveston, having performed at numerous events over the years including: Ships to Shore Festival, Richmond Maritime Festival, the Seine Net Loft restoration official opening, and Musical Expression Summer Series. Today they’ll be presenting a selection of songs of the sea in celebration of the Richmond Maritime Festival. website facebook youtube twitter
