Bowdoin – House Concert
May 10, 7:00 pm - 9:00 pm$20
Lisa Ornstein with Andre Marchand and Normand Miron are “Le Bruit Court dan la Ville” in concert at 7PM Concert preceded by a jam session at 5PM, followed by potluck dinner (bring a dish). Donation $20. Reservations encouraged. Lisa Ornstein, Normand Miron, and André Marchand are legends of Quebec’s traditional music scene. Fiddler Lisa and guitarist/singer André first met as band-mates in La Bottine Souriante, the iconic trad super group which kick-started Quebec’s folk music revival. Normand is a marvelous singer and accordionist who grew up surrounded by family musicians in Lanaudière, the epicenter of Quebec’s folk music scene. As a trio, Le Bruit Court Dans La Ville produce a music which is at once deeply-rooted, innovative, nuanced, and spontaneous. André’s meticulous accompaniment and gorgeous vocals compliment Normand’s pulsing accordion, grit-and-polish vocals and irrepressible spirit, while Lisa’s fiddle combines soaring harmonies with fiery tunes until dawn learned over years of kitchen visits with old masters. There will be an opportunity to meet the band and jam before the concert! At the home of Pam Weeks. FMI or to reserve a seat: Pam, 207-666-3709.
