We admit it. This week’s list of recommended shows to see is a bit backloaded. Four of these five events are happening on Friday. But the good part is, there is something for everyone’s tastes. Classical, metal, traditional Irish music, dance and electronic, it’s all happening. And then there’s our lone pick for Saturday. Go forth and enjoy.

Ever heard of Lúnasa? They are, without a doubt, Ireland’s leading export of traditional music. Carrying the torch lit by the likes of The Chieftains and The Moving Hearts, Lúnasa bring an energy all their own to this music.

Elm City String Quartet | Wilmot United Church | February 10 | 7:30 p.m. | View Event

Fredericton’s one and only string quartet bring their winter performance series home for a show at the Wilmot United Church. Playing a mix of Mozart, Barber, and Imogen Holst, this performance from the Elm City String Quartet is sure to bring a little wow and comfort to your winter blues.  

Womb To Tomb | Tipsy Muse Café | February 11 | 7 p.m. | View Event

As Womb to Tomb, Jasmine and Jillian Wong play folk music of a flavour reminiscent of the 70’s folk revival. Soft dynamics, beautiful voices, and a mix of instrumentation make for an eclectic sound steeped in revising traditions. Delicate and fearless. A perfect fit for the Muse stage and atmosphere.
