Growing up around musicians and spending a lot of time at kitchen parties or backstage at folk festivals, it’s no surprise that you may become a musician yourself. And so it was for the young musicians of the Canadian band Les Poules à Colin. All the band members come from Québec, a region famous for its vibrant musical tradition, and learned their craft from the best musicians in the region, including their parents. In other words, the best pre-requisites for a musician’s life in a band, whose name logically harks back to a traditional Québec song.
