Cultural Art Series Presents: La Famille Leger

June 17, 2017 @ 6:30 pm - 8:30 pm

Free

Every third Saturday of the month, Northwest Folklife comes to the Eastside to present an evening of music at Crossroad’s Market Stage in Bellevue and we would like you to participate!

Introducing: La Famille Leger

Born of a time when family and friends would gather in the warmth of the kitchens of Québec and New Brunswick to play and dance time-honoured tunes together, La Famille Léger keeps that rich tradition vitally alive. The Légers play the dancing music of French Canada – the music handed down through generations in the New World, the music of back porches and kitchen parties. Patriarch Louis Léger leads the band on the one-row melodeon (a type of button accordion), son Devon plays fiddle, Devon’s mom Barbara plays guitar and his wife, Dejah is on piano. This proudly “old school” family band will have your own family dancing and joining in on the fun!
