Coup de Coeur Francophone Klô Pelgag (Sophie Villeneuve en première partie)

  • Old Fire Hall 1105 1st Avenue Whitehorse, YT, Y1A 0X0 Canada (map)

COUP DE CŒUR FRANCOPHONE This year, the French Yukon artist, Sophie Villeneuve, will open the way for the talented invited artist from Québec, Klô Pelgag. Biography – Klô Pelgag Klô Pelgag prevails much like an evanescent breath of air in the Québec musical landscape. The birth of her second album, “ L’étoile thoracique” has, once again, urged her on to carry her creatures on a tour to the four corners of the Francophone world. She considers the stage her own vast playground, but where most artists strive to show their best and most polished versions, the winner of four Félix awards at the last Gala de l’ADISQ, including “Writer and composer of the year”, dives head first in the opposite direction. Set in a circus-like atmosphere, Klô Pelgag leads troops toward the improbable - a desire, beyond logic, to surpass in a stroke of lightning and frenzy.

Biography – Sophie Villeneuve Inspired by her new life in the North since leaving Québec, Sophie Villeneuve tells her story in all honesty, in her show, “Le Chant du Hibou”. Whether through her stories about dogsledding, her northern romances, her skiing adventures in avalanche country or her winter spent living in a prospector tent, she doesn’t let you miss the journey. Characterised by the directness of her lyrics, Sophie moves from guitar to piano in her mainly French compositions, with a few in English. Addressing the crowd as if around a campfire, Sophie Villeneuve offers an authentic North of 60 experience.
