Welcome to Marc Audet Music
I find that music can satisfy or appeal to an important aspect of our soul. Music unites us and it brings peace and contentment. When I'm performing, it warms my heart to see smiles on people's faces, or tears in their eyes. I love to hear stories of how music inspires or motivates people. When you add music to a gathering, whether an art show or reception or farmer's market, it relaxes people and shifts the mood to a better place. When you bring music into a hospital or a care facility, it brings people to another place. Music is amazing. This is what brings me encouragement in performing and writing music.
March is upon us, and although we still have several feet of snow here in North Renfrew, it's slowly starting to melt away. My Winter Folk Show continues to be a love of my life; telling stories, singing my songs, and meeting folk music enthusiasts. This "tour" kicked off in Deep River on January 19, with the other dates including Renfrew (January 31), Combermere (February 09), Pembroke (February 29), Ottawa (March 8), Killaloe (March 15), and Shawville PQ on April 07. This is a 2 hour (2 set) show, with the second set focused on stories of the heritage of the Ottawa Valley put to rootsy folk songs. I love how Canadian folk music kingpins like Dave Gunning and David Francey take time in their live shows to introduce their songs in detail. It add so much to the listening experience.
I am now doing live streaming shows on Thursday evenings at 8:00 pm (EST) on my FaceBook Musician Page (search for Marc Audet Musician on FB to find my page. I find that it's a bit odd performing before a Tablet, but I'm getting used to it, and it's encouraging to see so many people viewing the 30 minutes shows. Take care everybody, be nice to each other, and thanks for visiting my web site .... Marc.
Here's an upbeat rocky folk song that I wrote a few years ago - I Favour You. This is a romantic song about having an "interest" in another person. How many television shows and movies have you seen where an interest evolves between work partners, but the interest remains only as an interest?. That tension is what inspired this upbeat folk song. Backing musicians include Brad Scott (banjo), Tyler Kealey (accordion), Blair Hogan (bass guitar and mandolin), Dylan Roberts (drums) and Jenna Steele (backing vocals). I hope you enjoy it. Check out the other songs from my album.
