Yves Lambert Trio
Yves Lambert is a back country musician with a kamikaze style, whose 40 year career has been full of risks, adventures, and challenges.
Over time, Yves Lambert has become a veritable patriarch of the revival of Quebecs musical roots. His very personal manner of linking the relevance of his words with anecdotes and his concerns contribute to his great propensity for interpretation. Lambert can sing it all, from Boisson davril with Groovy Aardvark (a hard rock Quebecois band), to childrens songs such as Gilles Vigneaults Un trésor dans mon jardin, or by going blues on Petite fleur by Sidney Béchet. He also passionately supports the songs of poet Gaston Miron, all while maintaining his traditional music leadership role in La Bottine Souriante and his Bébert Orchestra. In fact, some Quebec critics portray Yves Lambert as a beacon in the aesthetics of Quebecs cultural heritage.
It was in 1976 that the singer and multi-instrumentalist founded what became the legendary group La Bottine Souriante, with partners Mario Forest and André Marchand. Mr. Lamberts natural talent and charisma, together with this growing group, has had a strong impact on the evolution of Quebecs musical heritage as well as the revival of traditional music. Throughout his 26 years as a member of La Bottine Souriante, Yves Lambert was the link between the various incarnations of the group and was their heart and soul. From 1976 to January 2003, he contributed to the groups rise by participating in numerous shows, tours, and television programs in Quebec as well as around the world. The Bottine experience led him to share various awards with the group, including 3 Junos, 8 Félix Awards for Traditional Album of the Year, and 1 BBC Award for Traditional Album and Group of the Year, as well as Félix nominations in the following categories: Show of the Year, Group of the Year, and Most Successful Artist Outside Quebec
Lambert, Rondeau, and Gauthier experimented with the trio concept during their 23-concert summer circuit tour in Eastern Quebec in 2010. Strongly encouraged by charmed audiences and by the pleasure of the musical challenge, in fall 2012, the trio delivered an album where the sound achieved extraordinary mastery and affirmed the trios distinctive personality. The trio brilliantly demonstrates how traditional local music continually reinvents itself within a modern context. Despite there being only three musicians, nothing of the sound is lost. The three multi-instrumentalists multiply the decibels as though there were many more than three members. Studio wizardry? Absolutely not! With a simple modification to his guitar, Olivier Rondeau added depth by expanding the instruments dynamic range. This process enables a new way of playing guitar and bass simultaneously. What we hear on the album can be 95% reproduced live on stage.
+ River Run
River Run is not your typical Americana family band. Based in New Haven, CT, their sound is rooted firmly in guitarist Bill's classic rock influences, earthy vocals from lead singer Sam, and Kat's intuitive and sonorous fiddle interludes. With soaring sibling harmony and original song writing, they create an undeniably enchanting musical experience.
Sams powerful voice made it clear why she took lead vocals, and yet her voice and Kats blended as only siblings voices can. Bills guitar provided the solid foundation for them both. The final element in the bands sound was Kats fiddle playing, at which she excelled. - The New Haven Independent
