Les Poules à Colin at Empire State Railway Museum in Phoenicia

les-poules-@

The members of the excellent Québécois world/folk ensemble Les Poules à Colin (Colin’s Hens) have known each other since infancy. The Colin of mention is Colin Savoie-Leva, the one male member of ensemble. 2014’s Ste-Waves brought them a nomination for a Félix Award, the Québec equivalent of a Grammy. Although fiddles, mandolins and foot percussion abound, this bilingual disc is hardly traditionalist; it bridges the gap between Quebec folk and sophisticated contemporary singer/songwriter.

On their first full-fledged US tour, Les Poules à Colin make a stop at the acoustically pristine and high-character Empire State Railway Museum in Phoenicia on Wednesday, July 13 at 7:30 p.m. Tickets cost $17 at the door or $15 in advance.

The Empire State Railway Museum is located at 70 Lower High Street in Phoenicia. For more information, visit https://flyingcatmusic.com.
