La Famille Leblanc with the YTV Touring Group
May 5 at 7:00 pm - 9:00 pm
This event is part of Vermont Folklife’s Young Tradition Festival, taking place May 4-7 in Burlington.
Robin LeBlanc, accompanied by his wife Rebecca and daughters, carries on 6 generations of French-Acadian musical tradition. The three LeBlanc sisters dance the jig to the sound of their father’s violin which takes up dance tunes played by his great-grandfather. Charlotte plays the violin, Rosalie accompanies her on the piano and the concertina and Mélodie embellishes everything with her jig steps and flute. Their mother harmonizes her voice with theirs.
The 20-member Young Tradition Vermont Touring Group’s performance of traditional music and dance will include material learned on their week-long April tour of Cape Breton, which will have concluded just days before the festival.
