FREE NOON CONCERT @ GAZEBO

Co-presented as part of the Dawson City Summer Concert Series by the Klondike Institute of Art & Culture, Klondike Visitors’ Association, and Association franco-yukonnaise:

Veranda est la collaboration entre la comédienne et musicienne Catherine-­‐Audrey Lachapelle (District 31) et le musicien multi-­‐instrumentiste Léandre Joly-­‐Pelletier. Les deux jeunes artistes viennent de sphères bien différentes, et c’est ce qui donne autant de richesse à leur travail. Veranda propose un parfait alliage d’influences, accordant habilement bluegrass, folk et country. Le duo navigue à merveille entre simplicité et virtuosité, et offre des mélodies riches rehaussées par un travail harmonique raffiné. Après un premier EP en anglais classé parmi les meilleurs albums de la mi-année par ICI Musique en 2019, le duo offre maintenant un deuxième album, entièrement en français cette fois-ci. Avec cette nouvelle œuvre unique en son genre, aussi festive que sensible, Veranda s’impose par l’originalité de sa démarche. Imaginez un endroit reculé, une bucolique cabane dans les bois, devant laquelle se bercent tranquillement Dolly Parton, Ralph Stanley et Emmylou Harris. Veranda, c’est ça.

Veranda is the collaboration between Catherine-Audrey Lachapelle and Léandre Joly-Pelletier. After a well-received first EP released in 2019, Veranda presents a new record of original french bluegrass music that blends traditional and contemporary, simplicity and virtuosity. Their music is filled with sweet harmonies and soulful melodies. From high lonesome bluegrass to intimate folk ballads, the duo offers a fresh take on classic Country music. Imagine a place way out in the countryside, with Dolly Parton, Ralph Stanley and Emmylou Harris singing under the pines; that’s where Veranda calls home.

Né en Montérégie, au Québec, Gab Gosselin manie la guitare et les mots à sa guise depuis plus de 20 ans. S’inspirant d’un large éventail d’artistes francophones du Québec comme d’ailleurs, Gab s’amuse à façonner une musique folk dans laquelle la prise de parole en français est un rouage de la performance. Il s’est produit au Whitewater Wednesday de Whitehorse, d’abord pendant l’hiver 2008, y fredonnant des reprises francophones festives avec le “7 legged band”, puis lors de l’été 2011 pour des sessions d’improvisation avec divers musiciens de la scène du même “micro ouvert”. À Dawson City, où il vit depuis sept ans, Gab a récemment performé dans le cadre des Dawson City Sessions, produites et enregistrées par Jonny Klynkramer.

Born in Montérégie, Québec, Gabriel has deep roots in folk québécois culture and music. Inspired by a variety of francophone artists from Quebec and beyond, Gab enjoys folk music in which French expression is heartily valued throughout. He was seen at Whitewater Wednesday in Whitehorse, first during the winter of 2008, humming his most festive french covers with “The 7 legged band”, and then during the summer of 2011 for jam sessions with various musicians in the open mic scene. In Dawson City, where he has lived for the past seven years, Gab more recently performed some of his original songs for the Dawson City Sessions, produced and recorded by Jonny Klynkramer.

Students choose one of three mediums to study for the duration of the program, learning new skills, techniques, and ways to creatively make artwork for the world to see.
