Dig up Québec’s deep, dark roots, add electrifying energy and beguiling modesty = mind-blowing trad-folk groove. Despite their young age, Les Poules à Colin have been playing together for over nine years and it shows in their sparkling complicity. The group has a strong stage presence and demonstrates a contagious pleasure in each and every performance, drawing the audience to them. Check out the video here.
