The O’Schraves

The O’Schraves (The O’Gorman/Schryer/Lefebvre Family) play music that is joyous, skillful, inspiring, and fun. They are in Guelph on March 3 2014 for a special show at St. David and St. Patrick Church.


Featuring two of Canada’s finest traditional musicians, Julie Schryer (Pierre Schryer Band, Brian Pickell Band), on piano, and Pat O’Gorman (Rare Air, Brian Pickell Band), on bagpipes, Irish flute and tin whistle, they are ably assisted by the younger members of the family, Benoit Schryer Lefebvre, 19, (2011 and 2012 winner of the 18-and-under Pembroke Fiddle Contest) on fiddle, tin whistle and vocals; Zach Schryer Lefebvre, 23, on his own handmade guitar as well as cello, tin whistle, piano and vocals; and Áine Schryer O’Gorman, 11, (2012 winner of the 9-and-under Pembroke Fiddle Contest) on fiddle, stepdancing, tin whistle, and vocals.

In concert, The O’Schraves play captivating traditional Canadian, Irish, and Scottish music mixed with new compositions written by modern tune composers and members of the family, as well as original and traditional songs and even a stepdance or two for good measure. Their concerts appeal to all-ages and present an inspiring variety of music and instrumentation with skill, joy, and good humour.
