Location Home Routes Borealis Trail and Via Rail Artists on Board
This is a second Home Routes tour for these two members of the Quebec folk and roots music scene. On their way home, they will be performing on the Via Rail train between Saskatoon and Toronto as part of the Artists on Board program. Guillaume Jabbour and Bill Gossage are members of chansonnier roots band Jabbour as well as Quebec Cajun band Les Flâneurs. This contemporary roots duo bridges gaps and draw parallels between the musical genres that inspire their own songwriting. Audiences can expect to hear original compositions from the bands they play in (the majority of which are in french but banter is in english when necessary), Cajun classics, chansons from Quebec and France’s chansonnier era, and a few Irish fiddle tunes. Dramatic waltzes, toe-tapping two-steps, jigs and reels… a guaranteed good time!
