IACHRE AND SOPHIE WITH ANDRE MARCHAND
SUNDAY, OCTOBER 6, 2019 AT 4PM
SHEPHERDSTOWN PRESBYTERIAN CHURCH
Sophie, Fiachra & André are a group of musiciens sans frontières who refuse to let the Atlantic sunder their love of their own and one anothers Irish and Québecois musical traditions.

Comprising of Irish uilleann piper Fiachra ORegan, Québec fiddler/singer Sophie Lavoie, and guitarist André Marchand, the trio take traditional Irish and Québécois traditional music, blended with Lavoies lithe and masterful compositions. Their choice of songs will captivate the most casual listener

Sophie Lavoie is a fiddler, pianist, singer and composer from Lac-St-Jean in Québec. She has played in various Quebecois bands including Lattisée and Tu men diras tant. Since 2008, she has been touring with Irish piper Fiachra ORegan. One of the rising stars of Québécois music (fRoots Magazine), Sophie has recently been awarded a scholarship for a Masters in ethnomusicology at University of Montreal. Her research involves the fiddle style and repertoire of her native region, Saguenay-Lac-Saint-Jean.

Fiachra ORegan, from Connemara, on the West Coast of Ireland, plays Irish music on the Uilleann Pipes, tenor banjo, and whistle, He is a senior All Ireland Champion on both these intruments. Fiachra has performed throughout the world, touring in his own group as well as with many other artists and groups. He is also sought after as a teacher in private lessons and at festivals.

The duo Sophie & Fiachra has recorded three albums: Sophie & Fiachra (2010), Rewind (2014) and Un Canadien errant (2016), the latter was nominated for Best album of the year at both ADISQ and Canadian Folk Music Award in 2016.

A figurehead in the Quebec Trad scene, André Marchands career is marked by artistic projects that have marked the history of traditional music over the last 40 years. Guitarist, singer and composer, he started as co-founder of La Bottine Souriante. From 1976 to 1990, he toured Quebec, Acadia, Canada, the United States and several European countries and participated in the recording of the first six records of La Bottine.

From 1990 to 2009, he became sound engineer and director. He contributed to the birth of nearly 200 projects, giving voice to several emerging artists and other well-known properties, actively contributing to the emergence of the environment.

A singer with a deep voice, warm and well posed, André is a character endearing to the quick wit and the overflowing humor. His unique style of guitar accompaniment, all in nuance and finesse, influences several generations of guitarists evolving today in the Trad Québécois milieu.
