 2022 Fall

Welcome cyber friends and music enthusiasts! after a very active summer, I am currently taking a break from performing in order to focus on what will be my second folk music album. The first album, The River (folk rock), was released in 2019, and since then I have more than enough new songs for a second album. I love creating music. Recording is a satisfying way (but very challenging) to document my songwriting, and the new album will include more songs about the history and heritage of my stomping ground, the Ottawa Valley.  Take a look at the interesting map below to see the range of my travels in experiencing the history and heritage of the Ottawa Valley.

My plan for the fall is also to produce of videos from spring and summer solo and NORTH RENFREW shows. North Renfrew, incidentally, is my 5 pc folk group that started performing on festival stages this past summer.  The first video has been uploaded (/videos), so watch for more of those videos appearing on my website!!. 

In the new year, I plan to perform throughout the Ottawa Valley with my Winter Folk Show, to help take the chill off the long Canadian winter. Come see me perform live if you can. I should have my new album available by then.

Thanks for spending time on my website, stay healthy and enjoy life!.  If you enjoy my music, sign up for notifications (/contact), or send me a note of encouragement.

Here's a neat graphic - the geo-demographics of Marc Audet Music. The song places mark the route of my musical tour of the Ottawa Valley in the folklore video series Forgotten Memories of the Ottawa Valley (/videos). I promised a friend that I would write a song about the logging and river drives along the Schyan River, so hopefully that'll appear on the map before long. 

If you haven't heard some of these songs, and stories, spend some time exploring my video series Forgotten Memories of the Ottawa Valley. Better still, book me to entertain in the new year ... I love house concerts.

Talk to Me – at many historic sites, all that remains are crumbling ruins with giant pine trees overlooking. The people that settled or lived at these sites are long since passed away, yet those trees remain.

Talk to Me – at many historic sites, all that remains are crumbling ruins with giant pine trees overlooking. The people that settled or lived at these sites are long since passed away, yet those trees remain. This introspective song reflects on this … if only these trees could talk, and reveal all that happened before them. This recording of the song includes melodica accompaniment from Bradley Audet, recorded during a rehearsal for a show at the Ottawa Grassroots Festival in late April, 2022.
