Juniper Trails Bed and Breakfast is hosting their final event in a series of six high-calibre house concerts on Tuesday, April 16.

Silk Road, a Vancouver-based world music ensemble, is set to entertain music lovers, threading the cultures of Asia and the world – from classic Chinese solos and intimate duets to multicultural ensembles that rock the house.

Qiu Xia He (pronounced Chew Shah Her) and Andre Thibault, with a charming and effortless blend of Chinese, Celtic and Brazilian sounds, introduce the audience to different cultures through their experience, discoveries, and travels.

Founded in Vancouver in 1991, the ensemble pioneered the kind of Chinese-Western musical fusions that one now hears in acts ranging from The Sparrow Quartet to Yo Yo Ma’s Silk Road project.

It has blended Chinese folk and classical music with Celtic, Latin, Arabic, Aboriginal, jazz, and blues music.

It developed two exciting educational programs to bring world music to school children, and in 2001, it created a groundbreaking recording and performance project that paired Chinese and European-Canadian vocalists for bilingual duets of Chinese folk songs.

Along the way, it earned a Juno nomination, two West Coast Music Awards, two Canadian Folk Music Award nominations, and countless enthusiastic reviews.

Most recently, Silk Road Music has turned its attention to “sinified” flamenco music, performing on stage with flamenco dancers and engaging in an extended study period in Spain.

Seating is limited.

Tickets for the performance are $20 with the entire proceeds going to the musicians.

For more information and to reserve your seats, contact Steve and Emily at 250.398.8296, info@junipertrails.ca.
