la Riviere REMIX 4:060:00/4:06
“Marc plays music which calls back to the bygone history of Eastern Ontario with tales of the Voyageurs and Coureur De Bois of the Ottawa Valley. His music is as calming as the flowing Ottawa River. His presence is serene and introspective, much like the territory he sings about. While listening to him, you may find yourself in a different place and time. Join him for an evening of history, folk legends, and authentic entertainments.”
