Luce Dufault in concert

This event will take place at the Salle Lévis-Fortier of the Externat Sacré-Cœur in Rosemère. Born in Orléans, Ontario, her artistic journey, spanning two continents, is dotted with experiences and successes. It all started in Aylmer, at the age of fifteen, in a shopping center. She was singing with her back turned to the audience! It was with Stable Mates, her first group, that she toured the sanctuaries of Montreal blues. Her rhythm’n blues repertoire glued to her powerful voice has already earned her the esteem of the public.
