Bon Débarras

The Québécois band Bon Débarras was born from a chance encounter between three dynamic artists from the music, dance and poetry worlds. Drawing their inspiration from the rich traditions of French-speaking North America, the band was nominated for their self-titled début for an ADISQ award in the 'Traditional music album of the year' category; and again in 2013 for Errance, their second opus. Changes have occurred among the members, but the trio remains true to their roots, while exploring composition and music styles including folk, trad and slam... an American crossroads where tradition and modernity meet.

"Bon Débarras has two meanings. One is 'good riddance' and good riddance is about getting rid of sorrow, anger and all negative energy. We let it go when we play music. We let it out. Also in French, débarras is a place to keep old stuff you don’t want to get rid of. We are like a storage closet where we can go and find traditional influences and inspiration." —Jean-Françoise Dumas
