”Get ready world, this group is already really, really good and on its way to greatness.”-WPR @ The Fringe festival inEdinburgh, 2017
Les Poules à Colin (out of Montreal) have been playing together all over the world for 9 years, and their sound is a seamless blend of their strong folk upbringing and North American influences that range from old-time to jazz, with some provocative and moody effects. Their repertoire is a mix of original and traditional Quebecois pieces that reveal gorgeous vocal, instrumental, and rhythmic prowess.
Over the past 3 years Les Poules have toured the world (Australia, UK, Sweden, Belgium, Germany, France, USA, Canada, Italy, and Cote d’Ivoire in 2017 alone), and this Summer they have shows at Edmonton, Canmore, and Vancouver Folkfests, a New York City and a Boston premiere, as well as appearances at Rocky Mountain Folks Fest, Festival Pause Guitare in France and Bardentreffen in Germany, and the Moab Folk Festival in Utah
”Morose, the third album from Montreal-based roots band Les Poules à Colin, shines a bright contemporary light into some of the cobwebbed cupboards of francophone folk” -Tony Montague, Penguin Eggs 2017
