La Bottine Souriante first appeared on the Québec music scene in 1976 and is a living legend of French North American roots music. In over twenty five years, this remarkable group has released twelve albums, four of which are certified Gold and three Platinum. But La Bottine Souriante is no longer simply a Québécois/Canadian musical phenomenon. The group and their explosive sound have crossed borders the world over and left in their wake countless enchanted audiences. The group has developed a distinctive sound that successfully allies its homage to tradition with a dash of jazz, salsa and pure folk, while at the same time perfectly representing the symbol of vitality and pride of its mother culture.
A returning act, La Bottine Souriante brought audiences to their feet with its boisterous folk music and dance at the Algoma Fall Festival in 1991.
