It's sad to see summer fade away, but so be it. I had great fun performing live and in person in July and August at restaurants, markets, festival events and house concerts, thanks to relaxed COVID restrictions. Maintaining the weekly livestream shows throughout the winter and spring put me in great shape to play as much as I could over the summer. Live, in person shows will continue into the fall until it gets too cold to play or the 4th wave of the pandemic shuts things down again.  September includes an effort to record and video the second set of my folk show Forgotten Memories of the Ottawa Valley.  Recording work has been completed, and now videos are being produced, with the first released being The Ballad of Rose McKenna (/videos). Official release of the full show will happen in November, completing a historical songwriting project that I'm quite proud of. The first set of Forgotten Memories is available to listen or download (free) on Bandcamp and videos are available on this here website .../videos.

Thanks for spending time on my website, stay healthy and be nice to each other.  If you enjoy my music send me a note of encouragement.

Not Forgotten (The River, 2019)

Marc Audet

Development of the Ottawa Valley in the early to mid-1900s involved large blocks of land being expropriated to make room for industrial development (hydroelectric) and for government institutions such as Garrison Petawawa and Atomic Energy of Canada Ltd. Historical records show the old settlement roads and the locations of homesteads, stopping places and early farms. Some of the names of the old farms and stopping places have been adopted in our modern world, but otherwise all that remains are the traces of old homesteads; house foundations, steamboat wharfs, stage coach trails. These lands have also become wildlife refuges with access controls allowing the wild lands their privacy. This song pays tribute to the sadness that affected folks felt when they were told to move. These folks include the Lamures, Richards, Forans, McQuestions, Shields, Nadeaus and many more. Like with the song Holden Pond, this is not a protest song; it simply tells the story of a time and place in the Upper Ottawa Valley.

Feature Track

Talk a Mile is a love song; a courting song. It's about looking for an opportunity to initiate a relationship; to simply walk and talk ("talk a mile"). This song was written on the shore of the Madawaska River on a warm sunny afternoon while the rest of the group were off swimming in the river. It was another inspiring time and place.
