LA GRANDE VEILLÉE!

A fabulous night of music, dance and revelry!
with Carlos Placeres & Yves Lambert et le Bébert Orchestra
Saturday March 5, 8pm
Mackin Park, 1046 Brunette Avenue, Coquitlam

The Festival  site will be closed between 4 :30pm and 7pm, when it opens for the concert.


Carlos Placeres brings sizzling Cuban music: the rumba, danzon, bolero, guaracha and more. This trovador (troubador) plays a mezcla perfecta, the perfect mix of traditional, contemporary and original music that fuses Afro-Cuban rhythms, reggaeton, Andalusian and Arabic sounds, jazz and funk. Its music simply made for dancing!



For over two decades, Yves Lambert’s accordion and moustache were at the beating heart of La Bottine Souriante, Québec’s ground-breaking folk band. His talent and creativity made him one of the most important players in the renaissance of traditional Québécois music.
But in 2003, after more than a decade as Bottine front man getting the world on the dance floor, Yves was ready for new challenges. His exploration led him to form Le Bébert Orchestra, performing both the folk and traditional songs he brought to the world with La Bottine along with creations of his own. With him are four talented multi-instrumentalists who offer a brilliant, festive performance with a strong Québécois accent. Their music grabs you by the “roots”, shakes you upside down and puts you back on your feet with nary a care!
