ST-LAURENT PUTS ON ITS SUNDAY BEST - Bob Walsh

2007-08-02, from Member
COMPTON, August 1 , 2007 – On Saturday, August 11, 2007, at 8:00 p.m., the Louis S. St. Laurent National Historic Site of Canada invites the public to celebrate its 25th anniversary at a memorable evening in the company of Bob Walsh. The well-known bluesman will be accompanied by Guy Bélanger on harmonica and Jean Cyr on bass. This activity is presented in collaboration with the Louis S. St. Laurent National Historic Site’s Companions.

The name Bob Walsh by itself sums up nearly the entire history of blues in Quebec. For the past 30 years and more, the singer-guitarist has been on the road singing the blues in his unforgettable voice, and with his characteristic passion. Like him, his long-time partners Jean Cyr and Guy Bélanger have several decades of experience under their belts. In 2004, Guy Bélanger earned a Jutra Award for the best original soundtrack (for the film Gaz Bar blues), which he co-composed.

The St-Laurent’s garden will welcome 750 people for the occasion. Tickets will go on sale starting at 5:30 p.m. the day of the event. The public is invited to bring their own chairs.

Fees
Adults: $8.00 Seniors: $8.00
Children (6 to 16): $4.00 Families: $20.00

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.
