Bon Debarras, they sing, they dance and present Quebecois traditional music with a Montreal flair.

We are very excited to be working with Bon Debarras in the US.   Already booked for Old Songs Festival and New Bedford Folk Festival in 2018, they are excited to bring their version of Quebecois entertainment to the Northeast. While most of their songs are in french, their rapport with english-speaking audiences is excellent and they never fail to charm their listeners.

Promo video here.

And

Here is a video they posted yesterday. Kudos to the camera person, the video is one shot.

Connla, has been tipped to win the 2017 LiveIreland Concert of the Year Award

According to Senior VP, Bill Margeson. The Awards won’t be formally given out until January 1, but Margeson states  the Concert of the Year honor is a foregone conclusion. “Lots of great concerts this year, but the one featuring the best music, creativity and fun is Connla. They were introduced to America this summer, and took each venue by storm. A new force.” LiveIreland is based in Dublin, with followers worldwide.

Connla will be back in the US in August and September 2018.
