Mélisande (CAN) – Wednesday April 24th 2019 7PM
The full name of the band is Mélisande [électrotrad] and “électrotrad” is a good indication of their musical style.
Led by Mélisande and her accomplice Alexandre ‘Moulin’ de Grosbois-Garand (a former member of Genticorum, another great Quebecois group), the band has delivered daring and unique artistic performances to the folk-world music scene since its debut in 2014.
Their first two albums were hailed by critics from home and abroad. The group has done shows in Canada, Australia, France and the United States and with its infectious energy and engaging stage presence, the band gets the crowd stomping, dancing and singing wherever it goes.
