Our third album received a third nomination, this time from the Indie Acoustic Project, the very same that had nominated Telescope back in 2011 for Best Instrumental Album.
This time, ID’s identity is labelled as “Multi-Genre” in IAP’s Best CDs of 2017, a nomination that responds beautifully to the ones previously received for Traditionnal album of the year (ADISQ 2017) and World Group of the Year (PMFC 2017).
A must-read in Roots Music Canada : a review and interview by d’Elizabeth Szekeres following the double-launch event held on March 23rd at Toronto’s Hugh’s Room with les Poules à Colin. The article’s conclusion is grandiose : “a magnificent musical oeuvre from the hands of four very talented musicians brought together by the genius brain of Marc Maziade”!
On March 23rd, Les Poules à Colin and MAZ will unite for a special event, where both bands will present their new album to torontian ears, Les Poules launching Morose, and MAZ, ID.
This double bill show will be held at Hugh’s Room ( 2161 Dundas St W), starting at 8:30PM. All the details can be found on Hugh’s Room’s website and on facebook.
PAC and MAZ are two of Quebec’s most innovative traditional / folk bands. For a look at the previous PACMAZ event, held in Joliette in 2016, see the following video.
