Steph Paquette with Special Guests Jessica Pearson & the East Wind
November 3, 2018 | 7 pm
Stef Paquette has been taking time to hear his inner voice, write new songs and simply live life. The renowned Franco-Ontarian singer-songwriter is also well known as a radio host across Northeastern Ontario with Le Loup FM and an actor in the popular TV series Hard Rock Medical and Les Bleus de Ramville
A natural showman with a wacky sense of humour, Stef Paquette loves being on stage and his audiences love seeing him there. Alone with his guitar and harmonica or along with his band, he has been crisscrossing Canada for years, playing countless festivals, concerts, major events and school workshops. In 2015, Stef Paquette garnered the Trille Or (French Ontario’s music industry awards) for Best Male Performer as well as nominations for the Best Singer-Songwriter and the Radio-Canada Public’s Choice awards. His charismatic stage presence and his ability to rally fans are widely recognized, as recently indicated by his ProducersChoice award at the 2014 Contact Ontario's industry showcase and his 2013 Trille Or award for Best Album.
Opening this show will be Jessica Pearson & the East Wind. They graced our stage in one of our Intimate Acoustics lineups and the crowd was asking us to bring them back before they'd even finished their set. Jessica Pearson is a Canadian born storyteller with a voice like melting honey on a summers eve. Accompanied by the melodic bowing of Pat Bigelow on the upright bass and the sweet fiddling of Maddy O’Regan, they bring to life tales of the past and express the beauty and heartbreak of the world today. After the release of their debut EP ‘Grave and Garden Songs’ in 2017, they have taken the stage at JunoFest, RBC’s Bluesfest and Manitoulin Country Festival and their music perfectly blends folk, roots and East Coast bluegrass. They're going to get this show warmed right up and we're looking forwarding to welcoming them back to the St. Lawrence Stage! Visit their website here.
