Pardon My French

This week on Donald Glenn’s Songs for Sunday, I’m featuring French Singer-Songwriter Damien Robitaille, who I discovered on New Year’s Eve when he posted a video of himself accompanying himself performing a Quebec folk tune called La danse a St. Dilon. Written by Gilles Vignault, the song tells the story of a country dance and is a favourite at New Year’s Eve parties in La Belle Province. Robitaille, who actually lives in the village of Lafontaine in Northern Ontario, has become a star of Quebec’s French music scene and has the tools and talent to make his mark with English audiences as well.
