LES CHAUFFEURS À PIEDS
Nominated three times to the ADISQ award ceremony, Les Chauffeurs à pieds offers a performance where versatility and musical virtuosity is only matched by the enthusiasm with which they share their passion. They took their folk inspired music throughout Canada, the United States, Europe, Australia and all the way to Africa. Released in 2012, their 7th album, Les chats jaunes ne meurent jamais, proposes a great mix of original and festive tunes.

THE SIFFLEURS DE NUIT
This quartet was born of the meeting of two singers from Brittany and two multi-instrumentalists from Quebec’s Eastern Townships. Their wonderful sound blends traditional Quebecois instruments such as fiddle, foot tapping and guitar, with songs from Brittany, drawing from each member’s cultural and musical background.
They also use unusual instrumentation such as trumpet, jaw-harp, and nyckelharpa to combine Celtic and Scandinavian influences to their brand of traditional Breton-Quebec folk. The Siffleurs de Nuit share their warm, festive, and always friendly spirit in their original show, alternating between stories, songs and traditional dance music. Their live energy is equal only to the passion they have for sharing their traditions!
