TURF 2015 Club Bonus Series: Les Hôtesses d'Hilaire at The Horseshoe Tavern - Concert Pictures
Acadian band Les Hôtesses d'Hilaire got things started in their own unique style at The Legendary Horseshoe Tavern for night two of the Club Bonus Series of the Toronto Urban Roots Festival. The band put on a unique show that was high on groove and energy but those of us whose French is not up to scratch only got part of the message, I fear.
The band's music is quite varied. It shows influences from bluesy good old rock and roll veering into psych territory at times with lots of 70s rock and classic organ sounds. We heard stories about life down east in small-town New Brunswick and got a glimpse into the band's political leanings.
