Yves Lambert TRIO at The Parlor Room

The Parlor Room (32 Masonic Street Northampton MA)


Yves Lambert is a leader in the revival of Quebecois traditional roots music. In 1976 he founded La Bottine Souriante who toured the world and sold half million records. His songwriting and capacity to create unique musical moods have defined him as a leading light in the traditional aesthetic of Quebecois cultural heritage. Well-known for his unique ability to translate anecdotal, poetic, or political texts into songs, in January of 2003, pushed by the wind, he put his boots on and went searching for new musical adventures. Always on the look out for innovative trends and attentive to the new guard of Quebecois musicians, he ended up surrounding himself with young talent and created the Bébert Orchestra in 2004, and later the Yves Lambert Trio in 2010.
