Last Saturday, Michel Robichaud won the 46th edition of the International Song Festival of Granby. The artist from St-Adèle and his band left with $ 60,000 in grant that will allow him to reveal his body of work, in addition to a 25 show European tour in 2016.
With this victory, Michel Robichaud is now graduating into a professional career and is actually preparing an album that will be released in the coming months. The artist from St-Adèle has charmed the audience being a talented singer, guitarist and storyteller transports his audience in a gentle universe, vibrant with humour.
Well known as a very interesting festival for emerging Quebec singers, the International Song Festival of Granby in 46 years has seen the emergence of many key players in the Quebec cultural scene. Indeed, names like Isabelle Boulay, Luc de Larochellière and Jean Leloup are part of the winners of the festival, as well as newcomers such as Patrice Michaud and Lisa Leblanc.
Last June, the Quebec Office in Washington also had the opportunity to host the emerging artist at the Smithsonian Institute in Washington DC for a Quebec Discovery show, flavored by a Quebec beer and cheeses tasting.
