Cold weather and raindrops will not prevent the queen from dominating, a rose from blooming and a wolf from howling.

A crowd of people attend a show that characterizes spirits. A show that brought together three of the most talented and inspiring songwriters and singers of their generation: Arian Roy, Terry LaRose, and Lou-Adrien Cassidy.

Presentation Title The King, the Rose and the Lord (Peace be upon him)was a nod to two concerts using the same concept, namely I saw the wolf, the fox, the lionwhich in 1974 brought together Félix Leclerc, Gilles Vignault and Robert Charlebois, as well as wind, sea and rocks, who introduced three of the stars of The Hour at Francos in 2003, Daniel Boucher, Eric Lapointe, and Kevin Barnett. All men (including two whose reputation is no longer enviable) …

Fortunately, (re)welcome to 2022, when it would be inconceivable that a music gathering at the top wouldn’t include any women.

Especially when their names are Arian Roy and Lou-Adrien Cassidy.

Falling hair and costumes halfway between grunge and disco, what a fiery look and presence on the Clark Street stage, while they were next to their friend and the evening’s top third, Thierry Larousse, who took home the Felix Leclerc Award for song at the start of the evening.

The union of their talents is binding, the audience had nothing but great tunes to put in their mouths. The trio got the ball rolling you want to talk by Ariane Roy, Cantalou by Thierry Larousse and Yes, the snake is watching us by Lou-Adriane Cassidy.

We were in the first row, and what an excitement was emanating from the podium! The girls’ hair was in the wind, Thierry LaRose closed his eyes to believe if all of this was true.

Ariane Roy and Terry LaRose

The tempo slowed down when they played three vocals and three guitars, perhaps the most beautiful song of the last decade, Twenty-five penny islands by Thierry Larousse. Nice to cry.

friends first

Old friends Arian Roy, Terry LaRose, and Lou-Adrien Cassidy shared the stage together long before the idea of ​​the show The King, the Rose, and the Luo (PBUH). They told the crowd that they loved each other as much as they liked each other.

They are three seasoned instrumentalists, but the harmony between them also gave them Saturday night in the Francos a lot of ease and luxury as instrumentalists. You Should Have Seen Lou-Adriane Cassidy Giving It All In His ‘Hole’ Versionbetween my legs.

If Adrien Cassidy

Or watch her perform with Arian Roy – They’ve known each other since the age of 9 – The song Girl wear.

Otherwise, we still have goosebumps when we think about the time Thierry LaRose gave Signal for the first notes of his pop house, played every time, Pompeii lovers.

Ten on stage

To complete the enviable trio, we’ve found on stage Charles-Antoine Olivier and Pierre-Emmanuel Baudouin on drums, Sam Pooley on bass, Dominique Plante on guitar, as well as Vincent Gagnon and Odile Marmite Rochefort on keyboards.

The title of the musical director of the show went to the one who collaborates with “The King, the Rose and the Wolf”, Alexandre Martel (Anatol). Hat for all his work.

The show – attended by many teenagers – had something to reassure us about the future of French song.

Arian Roy, Thierry LaRose, and Lou-Adrien Cassidy embody a generation of musicians who are inspiring, talented, but above all unrestrained.

To close the show before the unexpected and impromptu appearance (we heard in the distance when we left Between Matane and Baton Rouge from Isabelle Boulay), the trio of the evening invited Gilles Vallett to translate with him his huge success flowering life. A great sign of respect for the great Quebec pope in the past.

Ariane Roy, Thierry LaRose, and Lou-Adrien Cassidy displayed both class and enthusiasm. It was a chance to attend their show which would have taken place on the big stage and which would remain in the records of Franco.
