reveillons musicien david berthiaume




(Concertina, guimbarde, voix) 


With his unmatched singing style, David gives Reveillons! a raw distinct personality unique among the traditional music groups of Quebec. Having been steeped in traditional music as a child, he brings a vast repertoire of his family’s songs mixed with the unique accompaniment of the English Concertina which he learned despite his passion for French history and language. He claims it is an instrument commissioned by the grey nuns in the 19thcentury so it is simply a matter of reclaiming it as the rightful property of Quebec traditional music. He is currently completing production of an album by the Frères Berthiaume.
