Stone Church Arts presents Quebec traditional music trio É.T.É

BELLOWS FALLS — The traditional music of Quebec comes to Bellows Falls on Friday, Nov. 1, at 7:30 p.m. when É.T.É performs a Stone Church Arts concert in the Chapel at Immanuel Episcopal Church at 20 Church St.

Three young musicians with varied musical backgrounds united their creative and artistic forces to form the group É.T.É. Its members, Élisabeth Moquin, Thierry Clouette, and Élisabeth Giroux, offer a dynamic and modern vision of Québec traditional music.

É.T.É.'s musical arrangements are shaded with influences of folk, progressive rock, and classical music interpreted on fiddle, Irish bouzouki, and cello. Moquin also adds a special color to the group's appeal through her masterful step dancing.

The musical vision of the three performers is presented in their original compositions and unusual arrangements of traditional tunes. With rich vocal harmonies, musical drive, instrumental virtuosity, and remarkable on-stage complicity, É.T.É. transforms the traditional kitchen party into an unforgettably entertaining and lively performance.

É.T.É.'s first album, Le boire des minuits, was released in 2017. Since then, the group has received an award in the category Émergence of the Grands Prix Desjardins de la culture de Lanaudière for new young groups in 2017. They also received a prize voted by the public during the Cabaret Festif 2018 and more recently the “Discovery of the Year 2017-2018” Opus Award.

The group continues its momentum by touring in various parts of Quebec, the Maritimes, and in western Canada.
