Over time, Yves Lambert has become a veritable patriarch of the revival of Quebec’s musical roots. His very personal manner of linking the relevance of his words with anecdotes and his concerns contribute to his great propensity for interpretation.
Since 2010 Yves Lambert has presented a trio with a new sound that offers unusual brilliance and a distinctive personality. The Yves Lambert Trio with Olivier Rondeau and Tommy Gauthier shows with verve how traditional local music continually reinvents itself in the modern context. “We play as a trio, but sound like a big orchestra,” says Yves Lambert (vocals, accordions, harmonica, jaw harp, and percussion). Despite there being only three musicians, nothing of the sound is lost. The three multi-instrumentalists multiply the decibels as though there were many more than three members.
The Trio Lambert Rondeau Gauthier offers a live performance that’s on par with their new album, which is the result of significant research, experimenting and mixing ideas. But above all, it’s a team effort. By revisiting traditional music, this brilliant trio delivers new ideas in unexpected forms while carefully preserving the soul of the music.
