Jabbour – Saint Bernard – Folk Roots Radio Interview

Jabbour – Saint Bernard – Folk Roots Radio Interview

Jabbour are a bilingual contemporary roots band from Quebec with a love of musical collaboration, Cajun music and travel. Whether playing live or on record, they love to mix things up as they move from dramatic waltzes to Quebec chansonnier style tales, swinging rhythms and toe-tapping two-steps. From Guillaume Jabbour’s roots in chansonnier music from Québec and France, PEI native Bill Collier’s east coast songwriting excursions, to Bill Gossage’s Irish fiddle and the upright bass of blues and jazz player Carl Rufh – they are sure fire crowd pleasers who love making music together. They’re getting ready to release “Saint Bernard”, the follow up to their 2016 debut album “Round The Clock”. The new recording, produced by John McColgan features 12 original songs in both French & English, alongside covers from two revered chansonniers Gilles Vigneault (“J’ai pour toi un lac”) and Jean-Pierre Ferland (“Les journalistes”). We caught up with band leader Guillaume Jabbour at home in Montreal to chat about the new album. Jabbour will be releasing “Saint Bernard” at Petit Campus (Café Campus) in Montréal on Sunday, May 12 at 8 p.m. They will also be playing Montreal’s Festival Folk sur le canal on Saturday June 15 at 7 p.m. For more information, visit jabbourband.com.
