Great Scot in house concert

"A house concert in Merville in July was a huge success, and organizers are once again reeling in some young musicians from the Glasgow folk music scene for another house concert Oct. 9.

Campbell River girl Marissa Vachon began her musical career at the age of 10 as a founding member of the Celtic band The Island Girls, who were very popular locally for quite a few years. Their work included extensive touring around Canada, two European tours, and the production of four CDs.

Accepted into the BA program at the Royal Scottish Academy of Music and Drama in Glasgow, Vachon graduated with a degree in traditional music in 2009. She currently lives in Glasgow and plays with four Scottish groups including the award-winning band Tyskie, as well as teaching bodhran and flute."
