Lennie Gallant is one of Canada’s most beloved songsmiths, a multi-award-winning “class act” (Impact Magazine) who puts on “a powerhouse of a show” (Chronicle Herald). And alongside his massively successful solo career, Lennie has recently joined forces with Acadian songstress Patricia Richard, his partner in life and music, to create an all-new francophone musical project – Sirène et Matelot (The Siren and the Sailor). Hear their flawless harmonies, soaring songwriting, and down-home sound together with musicians from Symphony Nova Scotia in this soulful, stirring celebration of our Acadian home and heritage.
