It’s all Happening this weekend

The Happening at The Forty runs from July 24-26

It is Celtic music – with a twist.

Connor Schmidt, left, and Andrew Robichaud will bring their Celtic musical stylings to Murray Street Park this Thursday night as part of The Happening at The Forty.

Connor Schmidt, left, and Andrew Robichaud will bring their Celtic musical stylings to Murray Street Park this Thursday night as part of The Happening at The Forty.

That is possibly the best way to describe the music of Rutherford and Robichaud.

“We play the Celtic genre in the folk tradition but with our own twist,” explained Andrew Robichaud, one half of the duo which includes Connor Schmidt.

The pair will be entertaining the crowds this Thursday night at Murray Street Park as part of The Happening at The Forty.

“We play the guitar and the fiddle and like to include pop music from Great Big Sea and Mumford and Sons to make it more fun,” said Andrew, who has been performing with Connor for two years now at venues such as the Peach Festival, Ball’s Falls and as part of their high school’s, Blessed Trinity, band.

Connor moved here six years ago from New Brunswick and the first place he headed was the Fun School of Music on Main Street in Grimsby.

He credits Tom and Jen Elgersma for being supportive and encouraging the pair to pursue their musical dreams.

Both Connor and Andrew have been running a camp for kids at the school this summer.

Events at the park begin at 7:45 p.m. and wrap up with a fireworks display.
