The Outside Track
World Music Series Event
All World Music Series events are free and open to the public.
Winners of the Live Ireland "Group of the Year" 2012, The Outside Track's marriage of Canadian, Scottish and Irish music and song has been rapturously received around the world. Hailing from Scotland, Ireland, Cape Breton and Vancouver, its five members are united by a love of traditional music and a commitment to creating new music on its foundation. Using fiddle, accordion, harp, guitar, flute, step-dance and vocals, these virtuosos blend boundless energy with unmistakable "joie de vivre."
BW's Academic and Cultural Events Series (ACES) is highlighted by the World Music Series, featuring globally diverse musicians who often bring colorful cultural costumes, authentic indigenous instruments, and, always, exceptional artistry. ACES helps to coordinate BW's annual observances for Martin Luther King Jr. Week, Black History Month and Hispanic Heritage Month, too.
