Jean-Pierre Ferland celebrated at the Francos

Jean-Pierre Ferland’s mark on Quebec music will be celebrated at the Francos. The artist will be the subject of a free tribute show on June 18 on Place des Festivals. The Three Accords are also added to the programming, three days later.

The Francos announced the presentation of the concert on Wednesday The little kings: great tribute show to Jean-Pierre Ferland, under the direction of Ariane Moffatt. The cast has not yet been revealed, but we already know that it will be broadcast live on the Francos website.

“The words and melodies of Ferland flow through our veins, us, his little queens and his little kings of all generations,” said Ariane Moffatt, who will sign the staging and artistic direction of this show. We will sing it loud and clear with the festival-goers of the Francos de Montréal to collectively ensure that its poetry remains immortal. »

The outdoor Francos site, which was to be closed on June 18, will be opened specially to honor Ferland, said Maurin Auxéméry, director of programming. “ [On] could not miss this celebration,” he said.

The tribute concert The little kings, presented free of charge on the Place des Festivals, will be the subject of at least one radio version. The artists will be followed behind the scenes during the creation of the show and a “docu-concert” will be broadcast on June 24, the day Jean-Pierre Ferland would have turned 90, on ICI Musique.

The Three Accords await your requests

The addition of the concert in tribute to Ferland was not the only announcement made Wednesday by the Francos. On Friday June 21, Les Trois Accords will present a special free concert entitled Personal preference which will give ample room to the “personal preferences” of its admirers.


The Three Accords will play the special requests of their admirers.

“If there’s a song that you’ve always dreamed of seeing in a show and that we’ve never been kind enough to do for you, now’s the time to ask for it! “, proclaims the group. Titles can be submitted on the Trois Accords Facebook or Instagram pages.

The smiling boot, Alfa Rococo and a few other artists are also added to the program. The Francos de Montréal are held from June 14 to 22.
