Presented by Sun Valley Center for the Arts (SVCA), Bon Débarras unites the worlds of music, dance and poetry through a collaboration between Montreal artists Dominic Desrochers, Jean-François Dumas and Marie-Pierre Lecault. The group brings together a fusion of Quebecois folk music, traditional step-dancing and global influences for a show that’s full of fun and inventive energy. On guitar, banjo, violin and harmonica, the trio opens a door to their recollections of America with music at the intersection of various traditions. Bon Débarras’ energy taps into the rhythms of today and ventures boldly on the multi-faceted road to tomorrow’s dreams, all in an atmosphere that transcends boundaries and ages.
Educational outreach with Bon Débarras will reach every student K–5 in the Wood River Valley thanks to sponsor Bex Wilkinson and the Marshall Frankel Foundation, with additional support from Lloyd Construction and Neil Zussman & Cathy Whinnery.
