Laurie Hart fiddle, Hardanger fiddle/hardingfele, nyckelharpa
Paul Marchand guitar, vocals, podorythmie/foot percussion. Paul is one of the premier guitarists and singers in the Québec folk scene. As a member of Entourloupe, Manigance and other groups, Paul has performed all over North America and Europe and recorded many fine albums. Gifted with a sure sense of rhythm and a clear, strong voice, he has collaborated with a huge number of traditional musicians from Québec, France and Ireland. His two-year stay in Brittany gave him the chance to make contact with a song culture not so far removed from his own in Québec. He is an exceptional guitarist who, through his accompaniment, arrangements, and songs, knows how to bring out all the subtlety and sensitivity of the traditional repertoire. He lives near Québec City.
