Stewart Burrows is a singer-songwriter from Quebec who writes and performs his own brand of Celtic-Canadian folk music in English and French.  He has performed at festivals and venues across North America and Europe, and is currently a regular on the Montreal Celtic music scene.

For this concert, he will play guitar, banjo and mandolin.  Stewart finds particular comfort in sitting on his farm, by the shore of Lake St Francis in Dundee, nursing a pint of stout, while trying to play Blackberry Blossom, in D-flat, at pub-speed, on his mandolin.

 Stewart Burrows est musicien-chansonnier Québécois ainsi que compositeur et performeur de son style personnel de musique celto-canadienne en français et en anglais.  Ses voyages musicaux l’ont mené à travers l’Amérique du Nord et en Europe.  On trouve Stewart souvent ces jours là parmis les musiciens celtiques montréalés.  Pour ce concert, il joue guitare, banjo et mandoline.  Il trouve un réconfort spécial assis sur sa ferme sur le bord de Lac Saint-François à Dundee, pint-o-Guinness en main, en pratiquant “Blackberry Blossom” en Re-bémol à la vitesse de ‘pub’ sur sa mandoline.

Music Sunday - Pentecost May 20th/ Dimanche de Pentecôte, en musique!

- LE FRANÇAIS SUIT -

Come join us for a celebration of spirit and song on this special day!

Steve Scales will knock your socks off in two songs by Thomas Dorsey, the Father of Gospel.

Arielle Soucy will be back to sing Purcell, an Irish folksong, and another hit from last fall, her beautiful La vie en rose.

We’re going to welcome a couple of young musicians (yes, a surprise!) that will make hymn singing a whole lot more fun.

Followed by coffee, tea and something sweet outside: it’s spring!

See you Sunday!

Venez nous joindre pour une célébration en musique ce dimanche le 20 mai.

À l’écoute : Steve Scales interprètera deux chansons du « père de la musique gospel » Thomas

Dorsey (on dirait que cette musique est fait pour Steve…il faut vraiment l’entendre).

Arielle Soucy chantera du Purcell, une chanson folklorique irlandaise, et sa superbe La vie en rose d' Edith Piaf.

Deux jeunes musiciennes seront avec nous (soyez gentil!) pour nous aider à chanter nos cantiques avec encore plus d’expression…

À dimanche !
