Information about the event
The Boulay sisters grew up in the Gaspé, riding in pickup trucks and ski-doo sleighs and listening to vinyl records. To understand why they are the way they are, we must turn to their father, who turned the record player into an alarm clock, and, armed with his VHS camera, always indulgent, posed as their first audience. We must also turn to Michèle Lee Richard, who at some point knocked at the Boulays’ door and taught the youngest how to sing; that same year, little Mélanie performed in front of a (real) audience – and at six hundred people at that – for the first time in her life, wearing her mother’s high-heeled shoes (which were way too big, but that’s how the six-year-old wanted it). We must also turn to their mother, who always supported them, even in ordinary times. We must finally turn to the established artists, who, with blind trust, accepted to lend them their stage.Learn more
