With Madonna coming to Rogers Arena in Vancouver for her The Celebration Tour concert on February 21, we’re warming up riders and concertgoers with a one-of-a-kind pop-up performance on transit.

Experience an electrifying fusion of foot-stomping fiddle music at Waterfront Station as 20 fiddlers play Madonna’s hits, including Material Girl, Like a Prayer, and Holiday. You won’t want to miss this one.

Performed by North Shore Celtic Ensemble, this pop-up is part of Art Moves, which is TransLink’s music and performance residency series that’s bringing liveliness to your commute.

“It’s going to be a lot of fun, I’m quite excited,” says Gabriel Dubreuil, the Executive and Artistic Director for the North Shore Celtic Ensemble. “It’s going to be high energy and something that is really unique, I don’t think it has been done before.”

Dubreuil adds he hopes the performance will liven up the space and make a difference in people’s commute. Come down to Waterfront Station to enjoy this Madonna fiddle mash-up performance!

The North Shore Celtic Ensemble is the Lower Mainland’s largest and North Vancouver’s only alternative youth music program specializing in fold and fiddle music. Their goal is to inspire youth to go further with music, and to use it to build and strengthen community connections.

The group of young musicians performing at Waterfront are between 12 and 19 years old. Despite being a young group, they’ve performed at notable venues including the Centennial Theatre, Terry Fox Theatre, Vancouver Folk Fest, the Calgary Stampede, and Festival du Bois.
