    Va-et-vient returns to the Martha Pellerin bandstand in Middlesex

    July 13 @ 6:30 pm - 8:30 pm

    We are honored to return in concert to Middlesex in July.  Martha Pellerin, for whom the bandstand is named, was a particularly important inspiration for Va-et-vient to form, providing us with wonderful Québecois trad songs to get us started.  Back in 1998, one of the first concerts Suzanne and Carol performed was for her memorial--a brilliant musician gone way too soon, and we still miss her.  Venez chanter avec nous pour conserver ces traditions.
