Gurdeep Pandher is pleased and honoured to announce that the Bhangra Show is happening at Yukon Arts Centre in Whitehorse on December 18, 2018. When there is cold season around, we warm up the Christmas spirit with high-energy Bhangra moves. We bring delights and make faces smile. Not only we celebrate the Sikh cultural dance in the Yukon, but also bring all other cultures together. Being “inclusive, open and doing things together” is our strength.
Jerome McIntyre loves his bodhran. He has been playing it with many Irish and Celtic groups for a long time. The idea of playing Bodhran to make people dance bhangra is definitely the idea of 2016. So, Jerome McIntyre is in and he will be playing at our show “Bhangra – The Dance of the Punjab” on December 17 at Old Fire Hall to marry two Bs (Bodhran and Bhangra) together. Therefore, please come to watch a wonderful and unique wedding of two arts!
Jerome’s has been drumming since the age of nine. He was introduced to traditional Irish music at a very early age, listening to rare old Irish LPs passed down through the family collection, many of which were on glass 78s. Since moving to Whitehorse in the mid-90s, he has played bodhran and other percussion instruments with such Irish and Celtic groups as “The Lilting Banshees”, “Trio Celtica” and “Celtic Tyde”.
