Some of Québéc’s top roots musicians will be performing at the second annual FestiTrad. This new French-Canadian traditional festival will be held April 7-9 in the beautifully rustic St. Gabriel, a small lakeside town nestled deep in the Lanaudière valley, the heartland of Québec’s music traditions.
Just 90 minutes from Montréal, FestiTrad is a comfortable journey north from New England and the perfect way to discover the joy of Québécois music. FestiTrad will showcase some of the most influential Québécois artists such as De Temps Antan, Les Charbonniers de l’Enfer, André Marchand & Grey Larsen, and more. It also will include a day of workshops with the artists, a dance, a jam, and daily concerts. The family-friendly venue is located indoors and the surrounding area offers lots of activities and beautiful scenery. Learn more at http://festitrad.com//.
