ST-LAURENT PUTS ON ITS SUNDAY BEST - La p’tite veillée

2007-07-18, from Member
COMPTON, Quebec, July 18, 2007 – On Sunday, July 29, 2007, the Louis S. St. Laurent National Historic Site of Canada invites the public to a festive afternoon of music by La p’tite veillée. Traditional Quebec music, featuring Paul Monette on guitar and mandolin and singer Diane Bolduc, will be on tap at 2 p.m. and 3:30 p.m. respectively.

A native Montrealer, Paul Monette took up music at age 6, via the mandolin. At 16, he bought a classical guitar, and has been playing it ever since. Born in St-Xavier-de-Brompton and a folklore passionate, Diane Bolduc helped amass, in 1983, a collection of more than 600 traditional French-Canadian songs as part of the project À portée d'oreilles. The two musicians have also been members of the group La veillée est jeune since its creation in 1992.

Visitors are also invited to take advantage of this special day to picnic in the St. Laurent family’s magnificent garden. The St-Laurent puts on its Sunday best summer program continues until Sunday, September 2, 2007. For further details, please visit: www.pc.gc.ca/st-laurent.
