    Susan Toman

    Susan decide to take up the Celtic harp, fueled by a love of Irish & Scottish music. Having briefly studied harp basics with Annabelle Renzo in Montreal, she decided to immerse herself in Irish culture and tradition by learning from an Irish master of the harp. After intensive studies with Grainne Hambly in County Mayo, Ireland (and inspired by many castles!), Susan returned to Canada and prepared to record her first solo harp album (Emerald Shores), publishing her arrangements in her book "Dance Tunes & Airs." Since then she has recorded a solo Christmas album (Angels on High), and an album of Irish and Scottish traditional 
    ​music with singer Ellen MacIsaac.  

    Andrew Mah

    Canadian guitarist Andrew Mah is a unique and exciting musician, widely regarded for his virtuosity, versatility, and heartfelt musicality. 

    Born in Ottawa into a family of guitarists, he has performed professionally on classical guitar for more than 26 years,  carving out a uniquely eclectic international career as a solo concert artist, chamber musician, teacher, arranger, producer, and adjudicator. 

    Having concertized throughout Canada, the US,  and Europe,  he was the first North American ever to tour in the Republic of Cape Verde.  

    Adjunct to his performing career, he has been active in a presenting capacity as former President of the Ottawa Guitar Society, and is often sought out for his expertise in the arrangement and notation of music from other cultures and styles into readable scores for classical musicians.  

    His long term project to record J.S Bach's entire catalog of solo music for lute, violin, and cello is currently underway.

    Participants are introduced to traditional Métis jigging, learning the basic steps before engaging in dances including the “Red River Jig”, “Heel-Toe Polka”, “Orange Blossom Special”, and a group dance called the “7 step”. The artist begins with the basics of the dance while discussing Métis culture and history from the fur trade to today.

    Brad Lafortune is Métis originally from Sudbury, Ontario. Brad began jigging at a young age and started providing workshops and performances in 2009 upon moving to Ottawa. Brad studied at the University of Ottawa where he received his Bachelor of Science followed by a Master’s of Physiotherapy. Brad enjoys combining his passion for physical activity and wellbeing with a deep love and understanding of his culture. Brad believes jigging is an interactive way to physically engage individuals of any age, all the while learning about the intricacies of Métis culture.
