Hear about their experiences with students in schools, their background, technique, collaboration, and more! A cash bar will be available.The traditional music trio Grosse Isle was born out of the “absolutely magical” collaboration between three exceptional musicians from Quebec and Ireland (The Irish Music Magazine). Together, Sophie Lavoie du Lac-St-Jean (fiddle, piano, vocal), Andre´ Marchand the legendary (guitar, vocal), and Fiachra O’Regan, Irish champion (uilleann pipes, whistle, banjo) shine with their rich and enveloping music. The band name refers to the story of the mass arrival of the Irish in the 19th century, on Grosse I^le in the St. Lawrence River, as they fled the Great Famine. It is a striking encounter between two peoples and two cultures. Fusing Irish and Que´be´cois repertoire with original compositions, Grosse Isle presents pieces from the album The Bonesetter as well as many surprises on stage! The harmonious blend of the two cultures, the authenticity and the immense talent of the artists give a sublime result! From laments to more rhythmic songs, the performance is varied and showcases the 1001 colors of the band. See less
