Tremblant International Blues Festival extends once more its reach beyond the Tremblant Resort as free concerts will be presented in the Village church. Three shows will be featured this weekend in the unique atmosphere of this intimate theatre located opposite of Lac Mercier:
FRIDAY, JULY 15
8 p.m.: Martin Goyette
The 39 year old native of St-Henri district of Montreal went to the quarterfinals of Quebec’s “The Voice” Season 4 leaving a strong impression with the judges. His second CD is scheduled for release in 2017 and will be the expected follow-up to “Warm Sweet Jelly” that featured blues, jazz, gospel and funk. With a summer tour on the agenda, Martin will be offering up some of new music on the next album.
SATURDAY, JULY 16
7:30 p.m.: Wang Dang Doodle
Guitarist, singer and composer Marc Parent has managed this quartet with a steady hand for more than 25 years! Drawing inspiration for the group’s name from the Willie Dixon hit, Parent and his band can play all styles of blues and rock.
9 p.m.: Soulstack
Soulstack carves out their modern roots music in nouveau-retro-style, inspired by sweaty sounds and throbbing rhythms, all performed with deep intensity, wild conviction, greasy organ, sweet tremolosoaked guitar, and heartbreaking harmonies. These young Soulstack men stand by their beat-up vintage instruments and bleed every ounce of emotion from them – taking the listener on a rhythmic and melodic journey from the swamps of Louisiana to the exhausttinged fuzz of Detroit.
