La Bottine Souriante
May 17, 2014
The impressive ten-piece ensemble that is La Bottine Souriante lead to the renewal of interest in Quebec’s roots music. With a full brass section, accordions, dancer, strings and lots of foot-stomping, the frenetic energy of La Bottine Souriante fuses traditional French folk music with salsa, jazz, and its own salute to Quebec. The rollicking outfit stays clear of popular trends and folk purism, offering instead music of depth and substance with the freedom to innovate and let the good times roll!
