For several years a group of people who love the vigorous traditional music of French-Canada, particularly Québec, have gathered for mutual learning and jamming at the Blackbird Music Store in Minneapolis. The jam is led by well-known fiddler Linda Breitag, who spent years studying and performing Québecois music and culture, and has been generously sharing her knowledge and inspiration with local musicians. The group includes musicians who play fiddle, flute, accordion, guitar, mandolin and foot tapping. We welcome musicians of all levels of experience who wish to participate in the magic of Québecois music.

The Marimba Bullies is a Twin Cities-based marimba ensemble playing upbeat, high-energy music based on the rhythmically complex music of the Zimbabwe mbira tradition. The Bullies’ repertoire consists of traditional African songs as well as arrangements of contemporary music performed in the lively, danceable, and just plain fun style that is unmistakably the Marimba Bullies.
