Fanfare Pourpour (Montréal)

On this joyful big band’s last visit to Guelph, Fanfare Pourpour “so enthralled” the local audience that, as the Guelph Mercury enthused, “they even managed to coax a few reserved Upper-Canadian couples onto the floor to waltz. Magnifique!” This time around, this “large family of 19 musicians” is celebrating its fifth album, La Pourpour, which Le Devoir calls “lyrical, joyful, dense, cinematographic, full of contrasts, with its zany times, theatrical, and even gently free.” Trumpets, saxophones, clarinets, guitars, banjo, accordions, violins, percussion, euphonium, tuba, musical saw and vocals combine in exuberant spontaneity and contagious enthusiasm. Although they have covered every inch of Quebec and toured from Sweden to Mexico, Fanfare Pourpour keeps going through their sheer pleasure in playing together: a joy that audiences happily share!
