Hailing from Vermont, Va-et-vient celebrates the many colors found in music from French cultures around the world. These musiciennes will take you through the centuries from France to Québec to New Orleans with lively dance numbers, touching love songs, kickin’ Cajun & Créole tunes, and rollicking Québecois favorites.
With backgrounds rich in French cultures & language and through lifelong experiences living and traveling in French-speaking lands, they bring back traditional tunes learned from Québecois elders (and youngsters!) and reweave them into their own arrangements and beautiful harmonies.
Va-et-vient features Carol Reed on voice, guitar, and mandolins; Suzanne Germain on voice and percussion; and Lausanne Allen on voice, fiddles, flutes, and mandolins. They been sharing their music, teaching, and engaging audiences throughout New England and Québec since 2001.
