Yves Lambert Trio
Saturday, April 23, 2016, at 7:30 pm
Yves Lambert figures among the most influential players in the roots Québécois revival. He is known for his unique ability to translate anecdotal, poetic, or political texts into songs. His work as a songwriter and his capacity to create unique musical moods make him a key figure in folk music production. In 1976, he was one of the founding members of La Bottine Souriant, with whom he performed for 26 years. In January of 2003, pushed by the wind, he put his boots on and went searching for new musical adventures. Always on the lookout for innovative trends and attentive to the new guard of Québécois musicians, he ended up surrounding himself with young talent and created the Bébert Orchestra in 2004, and later the Yves Lambert Trio in 2010. The trio showcases the unique connection between maturity and youth by creating a new world of poetry and celebration. Yves Lambert’s charisma and talent, coupled with Tommy Gauthier’s and Olivier Rondeau’s virtuosity and passion, the nuances of their arrangements, and their distinct harmony, make this trio a one-of-a-kind musical experience. yveslambert.com Tickets: $23 $5 Children age 12 & under Or call Old Songs to reserve: (518) 765-2815.
