Gaétan Morissette (right, on fiddle) performs with local pianist Gaétan Lefebvre. The two Gaétans often perform together, and worked together on Le Rêve de Shevrikay.

Musician Gaétan Morissette’s album took nearly five years to see the light of day, but its roots go back much further. Le Rêve de Shevrikay pays homage to the valiant labour and carefully maintained musical traditions of the English-speaking Irish community of Portneuf.
