Petit-Rocher, Cap enragé, La vie de galerie... all these favorites carry the Denis Richard stamp. Concert fans love his poetical touch and, during his summer shows, an aroma of freshly cut grass accompanies his folk-rock- blues-country songs.

Josée Vautour
Known as the little Céline Dion of Saint-Louis-de-Kent, Josée Vautour is 11 years old. She charmed the public with her stunning performance when Quebec singer Michel Louvain visited the coastal village during the taping of «La petite séduction»..
