LA BOTTINE SOURIANTE PR (417 words)
It was in 1976 that La Bottine Souriante first appeared on the Québec music scene, and over the course of the next twenty years (and nine albums), the no-holds-barred energy and singular quantity of this remarkable group has created an immensely loyal following.
La Bottine Souriante represents a significant contribution to the preservation and continuation of Québécois musical heritage, a unique mélange and evolution of folk music originating from France, England, Ireland, and Scotland, imbued over time with a color and rhythm particular to various regions of Québec.
While remaining true to its roots, La Bottine is far from static—the group has developed a distinctive sound all its own that successfully allies its homage to tradition with a dash of jazz salsa, and pure folk, to the delight of its equally diverse audiences.
