2019 marks a turning point for Bon Débarras: the amazing fiddler and singer Véronique Plasse is now part of the trio with Dominic Desrochers and Jean-François Dumas, the founders of the group. Her passion for Quebec’s folk music and her active work in promoting Quebec’s living heritage are definitely a source of inspiration for the group that is now working on new pieces towards a fourth album. A glimpse of this creative process will be heard this Sunday January 13 during the radio programme Excusez-la! on CIBL 101.5 .
In January, Bon Débarras will also be on the road again in the United-States and in Quebec with En panne de silence. Shows, performances for young audiences, evening dance partys, the year beautifully begins in movement for Bon Débarras!
