Adrienne Gallant sings the songs of her father
The launch of the CD “Ballades”, un projet père et fille, volume 1, Adrienne Gallant sings the songs of her father, Paul Daniel Gallant, author of Les Gars de Mont-Carmel, will take place October 27th in Chéticamp, NS, and on October 28th in Summerside, PEI.
The idea for this project was born after the performance of Adrienne Gallant during the closing show of the Agricultural Exhibition and the Évangéline Acadian Festival in Abram-Village in 2017. Following the reaction of the audience in the theater and on the social media of Adrienne's interpretation of a song of her father “Je te reviens”, it was decided to proceed with a first project under the theme of ballads written by Paul Daniel Gallant over a period of more than 40 years. During the past year, Adrienne and Paul spent many hours researching, tweaking, and recording a dozen of the most beautiful ballads that they both love.
Nostalgia will be a key feature in the recording and during the shows with songs that will recall memories of groups such as, Gameck, Brador, Panou, La Cuisine à Mémé, Le Théâtre des Moineaux, Le grand cercle, etc. “I've been producing and writing songs for over 30 albums, and lately there was pressure for me to record my own album,” says Paul Gallant. “On the other hand, when I heard Adrienne sing my songs at the festival, I said to myself that it is Adrienne who will record this album ... with my help of course.”
The introductory performances will include several special guests such as Colin Grant and Wayne Robichaud. The show in Chéticamp will take place on Saturday, October 27th at 7:30 p.m. at La sall Père Anslme-Chiasson and the next day on Sunday, October 28th, at the Summerside Festival de la citrouille at the Belle-Alliance Center at 7:30 p.m.
“We are thrilled to host this launch at the Belle-Alliance Center during the Summerside Festival de la citrouille. This show will be the closing event of this annual festival, which will take place from October 19th to 28th in the Greater Summerside region” says Christian Gallant, program manager for the 2018 Festival de la citrouille.
