« The future of traditional Québécois music appears assured… With their fresh folk sound, fine musicianship and original compositions, they’ve created a buzz of excitement…” Tony Montague, Penguin Eggs
Nominated for Trad Album of the year at ADISQ 2016 (Félix awards), winners of the Young Tradition competition in Burlington, Vermont (2009) and the Prix de la culture Desjardins (2010, Youth Creation), the five members of this young group from Québec’s Lanaudière region are inspired by roots music passed down from their families and learned at music camps and in jams. Their performances are entrancing and sparkle with unpretentious, natural talent and respect for their repertoire – beautifully arranged original and folk-trad songs and tunes (both French and English). As the offspring of trad musicians, they all study music and have grown up alongside and learned their craft firsthand from some of Québec’s finest in a region famous for its traditions. They’ve already graced the stages at venues in Canada and the US. Their first album Hébertisme Nocturne was recorded with a grant from the Lanaudière Youth Fund and the Québec Arts Council (2011). A fresh and exciting sound!
