Taking their name from a popular traditional song, Les Poules à Colin are a new take on a time-tested recipe –five childhood friends who share a history of music-making and family ties. Les Poules are a dynamic and creative group that turn heads wherever they go. Exposed to Québécois and other folk music from the moment they were hatched, these offspring of trad musicians were immersed in music, they have grown up with and learned their craft firsthand from some of Québec’s finest, whether backstage at international festivals or at lively kitchen jams in Lanaudière, arguably Québec’s most musical region.

THE SHOW: Morose

Their lastest album's sound is a seamless blend of their strong folk upbringing and North American influences that range from old-time to jazz, with some provocative and moody effects. Their repertoire is a mix of original and traditional pieces, primarily in French but with some English compositions, and it reveals gorgeous vocal, instrumental and rhythmic prowess. Fiddle, guitar, bouzouki, banjo, mandolin, piano, bass and foot percussion form a rich and varied backdrop for inventive arrangements.

Despite their youth they’ve already been together for more than six years, and have blossomed into intuitive performers. They’ve graced the stages at major venues in Canada and the US, such as The Winnipeg Folk Fest, Vancouver Folk Festival, Celtic Connections, Vancouver Island Music Festival, Festival du Voyageur and the Festival International de Louisiane.
