LIVE: ReVeillons! @ Caffe Lena, 4/11/10

Friday, April 16th, 2010


Did you know that traditional music from Quebec sounds an awful lot like traditional Irish music?

If you were in Caffe Lena’s in Saratoga Springs last Sunday night you would think so by listening to ReVeillons!, a four-piece outfit from just a bit north of us upstate Nippertownians.

OK, instead of English or Gaelic lyrics, they sang in French, but it really sounded like Irish traditional music complete with Jean-Francois Berthiaume playing the bodhran (Irish hand-held drum) and the suitcase – “the cheapest instrument I have ever owned,” he says.
