On Wednesday May 10, enjoy a concert at Southminster United Church, 15 Aylmer Ave, with Maja & David. What do the reviewers have to say?

"This is a real feast for fiddle fans. Their two traditions blend sweetly and seamlessly... showing that springy Scandinavian dances can segue beautifully into raucous Quebecois reels, and that drone-rich Danish airs work beautifully with their Canadian cousins." - Stephen D. Winick, The Huffington Post

"Ingenious and very beautiful. Wonderful fiddle duets .... and in addition two exceptional singers" - Bengt Edqvist, LIRA Magazine (Sweden)

"... A sphere beyond time and geography." - Yves Bernard, Le Devoir (Quebec)

Sounds good to me. :)
