La musique du Québec: identité et origine

Presentation by the Léger Family (in French)
Friday, November 16, 3pm
Cramer Hall 124 | 1721 SW Broadway

The Légers play the dancing music of French Canada - the music handed down through generations in the New World, the music of back porches and kitchen parties. Patriarch Louis Léger leads the band on the one-row melodeon (a type of button accordion), his wife Barbara plays guitar, son Devon plays fiddle, and his wife Dejah is on piano. This proudly "old school" family band will have your own family dancing and joining in on the fun.

This event is free and open to the public. It is part of the Event Series "The Faces of Quebec. Two Days of Music and Lectures "

Presented by the the French Section of the Department of World Languages. This event is made possible by a grant from the Government of Québec through the Québec Delegation in Los Angeles. Co-sponsored by Canadian Studies and the Portland Center for Public Humanities at Portland State University.
