Event description

Description

Le groupe Les Portageux est composé de trois membres provenant de la Mauricie. Le nom du groupe a été choisi en l’honneur des portageux qui travaillaient dans les chantiers de bûcherons et sur la drave.

Aujourd’hui, le groupe Les Portageux porte la musique traditionnelle du Québec pour la garder vivante dans la mémoire collective. Les chansons occupent une place importante dans le répertoire original et festif du groupe, en souvenir d’une époque où il n’y avait ni radio ni télévision et où les gens chantaient pour animer leurs soirées. Leurs chansons parlent d’amour, de malchance et du côté drôle de la vie, accompagnées d’un ensemble folk traditionnel qui vous fera assurément taper des pieds et chercher le plancher de danse !

Voilà l’esprit que recrée Les Portageux, un spectacle où les gens sont invités à répondre aux chansons et à danser sur les réels. La bonne humeur et la joie de vivre du groupe font du spectacle un événement convivial !

The three members of the band Les Portageux hail from Mauricie. The band's name was chosen as a tribute to the lumberjacks who chopped wood and floated timber.

Today Les Portageux keep traditional Quebec music alive in our collective memory. Songs are an important part of the band's original and festive repertoire, as a tribute to a time before radio and television when people would sing to entertain themselves in the evening. Their songs are about love, bad luck and the funny side of life, accompanied by a traditional folk ensemble that will definitely make you tap your foot and hit the dance floor!

That is the spirit that Les Portageux are recreating, a show where people are invited to react to the songs and dance to a different reality. The band's light-heartedness and joie de vivre will make the show a fun experience for all!
