St-Laurent puts on its Sunday best / Aurèle Lacroix and the Group Trisona

COMPTON, June 27 , 2007 – On Sunday, July 8, 2007, the St-Laurent National Historic Site of Canada will take a particularly festive air 2 p.m. and again at
3:30 p.m., Aurèle Lacroix and the group Trisona will be putting on a show of Quebec- and Celtic- flavoured folk music.

Aurèle Lacroix, a well-know fiddler in the Eastern Townships, has to his credit a most interesting musical background. In particular, he has taken part in several folklore galas, and appeared on stage during Montréal’s annual ``Francofolies``. He was also one of the first musicians to play in the folklore ensemble going by the name of La veillée est jeune. Today, Aurèle Lacroix forms, along with Marie Papineau and Christian Nolet, the group Trisona.

Visitors are invited to take advantage of this special day to come picnic in the magnificent garden of the St. Laurent family. It is also worth noting that the St-Laurent puts on its Sunday best program of summer activities continues every Sunday until September 2.

Celebrating its 25th anniversary this year, the Louis S. St. Laurent National Historic Site of Canada is open to the public daily from 10:00 a.m. until 5:00 p.m. By viewing the house where the former Prime Minister (1948-1957) was born and the general store that his father owned, visitors can discover rural ways of life at the turn of the 20th century. A multimedia show on a hundred years of Canadian history will also be presented.

Admission:
Adults: $6.90 Seniors: $5.90
Children (6 to 16): $3.45 Families: $17.25
(Fees include a tour of the historic buildings)
