Festive and Successful: A National Day That Exceeded Expectations in Quebec

One would have thought, after three years of no National Day and absence of major musical events, that there would have been crowds on the Plains, but that was not the case. Even if the show was in high quality, it was filled with many good moments and it was not very much like a TV show.

Yes, the sky was uncertain and unattractive all day, but the rain stopped after a performance by Marco Cagliari, Pepe and his guitar early in the evening. There was a small crowd, but of course nothing to do with the legendary gatherings of the 80s, 90s and early 2000s.

The 2022 edition left behind some songs from the past that come back year after year. It was a very good decision and has made this evening one of the very good Saint Jeans of the past 10 years. We also made an excellent choice by setting aside the eternal “music” of several songs.

The presence of Sarah Dufour, Jerome 50, Le-Adrien Cassidy and Scott Ben Picard brought a breath of fresh air to this evening as veterans Richard Seguin, Margot and Brian LeBeouf shined.

The idea of ​​placing the Akkadian group Salebarbes at the center of the show, by accompaniment of various artists, turned out to be excellent. In addition to achieving unity, Kevin McIntyre, brothers Eloy and Jonathan Pinchaud, and Georges Belvaux and Jean-François Bru, showed beautiful, festive and rich colors with their Akkadian and Bayeux voices.

Brin and Margo

An almost entirely female formation, under the direction of Antoine Graton, spread over two levels, also emerged.

Breen Leboeuf and Salebarbes displayed a huge version of the My blues pass can at porte d’Offenbach. The voice of most Quebecers in Ontario was strong, and the choruses were solid and strewn with Éloi Painchaud’s harmonica. something happened.

Breen Leboeuf continued in the same vein by presenting a powerful duet with Marjo for Rock de v’lours d’Offenbach. All dressed in white, racy Marjo made sweet moments with Amoureuse, so much love and I’m not letting go. Since turning 68, the unique and glamorous Margot is still a patent holder.

During another boring evening at Salibarbs, mod musicians were distributed on two bridges through the audience. We were also entitled, at the start of the show, to have a brass band, near the stage and on stage, when Jerome 50 interpreted if you liked the sun. It was visually beautiful.

Later in the evening, Jerome 50 and Le-Adrien Cassidy paid a beautiful touching tribute to Karim Ole by performing his famous song L’Amour.

“Thank you for your music, Karim. We will continue to make it resonate in our hearts and in our ears,” Le Adrien Cassidy said. The young Quebec singer-songwriter was totally on fire when she introduced her song and I still hope the wait will stop somewhere.

Return from Akume

We also, throughout the evening, gave pride to the Aboriginal artists with Laura Nikway, Scott Ben-Piccard and Florent Volant.

In terms of form, Marc Labreche gave a somewhat crazy patriotic speech where he ran in all directions, saying he was born by wolves in Quebec and talking about the daughter of Roy Gervais de Loutbenier, from millions of orgasms in Quebec, and millions of orgasms from all over the world. World, Zone 31 and Carrie Price’s knee. de Labriche who put politics aside.

A policy that arose when we paid tribute to René Lévesque, who would have turned 100 on August 24, by playing an excerpt from his speech at Aréna Paul-Sauvé, in which he asked the audience to sing Gens de Pays by Vigneault. What artists did on the plains

A big surprise at the end of the session when the Painchaud brothers revived Okoumé with Le Bruit des Origins and Dis-moi pas ça, accompanied by original members Hugo Perreault, Michel Duguay and Eric Gosselin. A wonderful and beautiful moment that coincides with the twenty-fifth anniversary of their first composition.

“We lived here, in 1999, the last national holiday of the 20th century. It’s a moment that’s hard to describe,” said Jonathan Pinchod.

Allons danser de Salebarbes put an end, with several bursts of fireworks, around 11:05 p.m., to an evening, we can say, very successful.
