The group Bon Débarras couldn’t wait to share with you a part of their creation work of the past months. Their brand new digital minialbum, “Repaires”, is a prelude to a full album to be released in Septembre 2020. The project will highlight the reference points, cues, landmarks, core values - which are called “repères” in French - that Bon Débarras has relied on for its creative process since its beginnings as a band. Identity bearings, geographical markers, linguistic and cultural reference points, yes – but they rely also on various inner hideouts, dens or “repaires”, multifaceted references forged through encounters, travels and life experiences. Their repères – milestones and markers – anchor solidly the band’s music in Quebec traditions while giving it a touch of the world around the corner. From their repaires – hideaways, havens of refuge –, they come out with a renewed energy irresistibly calling for dancing!
A new album is coming for Bon Débarras and here are the first occasions to ear their new songs. First, the group will present a showcase on February 18 at the Pub Murphy’s, during the Bourse Rideau OFFiciel de l’Agence Résonances. They will also participate at La grande veillée du Labo Trad at the Cinémathèque québécoise in Montreal on February 27.
The group Bon Débarras will begin 2020 with a beautiful tour in British Colombia. The trio will also record a brand new album in the coming weeks… Stay tuned!
Now that fall is here, Bon Débarras is getting ready for the 4th season of the show Le loup de Noël. With the storyteller Stephan Côté, the group will make you live the story of Griboux an old lonesome Laurentian wolf who has nothing to eat. Hungry, he goes down to the village on Christmas Eve, where he is attracted by the church lights… A story that brings us back to those times when the midnight mass and the « réveillon » were at the heart of the Christmas holidays.
Good news : Bon Débarras is invited by Le Chaînon Manquant, one of the most prestigious presenters network in France, to present a showcase during their annual festival in September. In collaboration with the caller Yaëlle Azoulay, the group will make people dance on their music during a special night called La Veillée Québécoise. The shows presented during the festival may then be integrated into the programming of the members of the Chaînon network, which generates more then 800 shows everywhere in France every year.
