Sara Latendresse

1 and 2 :30 p.m. | Promenade Deslauriers stage
Blessed with a warm and natural voice, Sara Latendresse sings about her deepest feelings. Eschewing the narrative structure, this artist focuses on writing lyrics to explore her soul and, by extension, the collective consciousness. She plays freely with her medium, concentrating on the sonority of the words and the vibrations of the music so that she can deliver her own take on truth.

Nathalie Albert

1 and 2 :30 p.m. | Promenade Deslauriers stage
Back in 2008, this trio wowed music fans with its record "No More Blue". Their second release, "Le Call de l’orignal", delivers a brilliant version of the song "La Foule" along with new, original works. Onstage, the trio is at ease in several musical styles (jazz, Latin, pop), clearly has a good time, and delivers improvised passages with disconcerting agility.

Mike Goudreau Duo Jazz

1 and 2 :30 p.m. | Promenade Deslauriers stage
The Mike Goudreau Duo Jazz does it all – big band crooning, groovy instrumental, dreamy Bossa Nova, New Orleans-style Dixieland jazz and hot blues swing. The duo does covers of big hits made famous by the likes of Louis Armstrong, Frank Sinatra, Nat King Cole, Duke Ellington and, of course, original songs by Mike Goudreau himself. He plays this warm and intimate show accompanied by Jonathan Boudreau on double bass.

Francis Gallant

1 and 2 :30 p.m. | Promenade Deslauriers stage
Francis Gallant presents his life in stereophonic sound to you for the very first time. He's on the road, luggage stuffed with his pop-rock songs about travel, the roads we take along the way, and the people we meet. His voice is a marvel, and he uses it to share in an intimate atmosphere his love of the little things and the moments of great happiness that make a simple life. "Ma vie en stéréo" is more than music and words; it's his passion, directed at you.
