La Virée

With original songs, a sound that appeals to a very wide audience and a contagious energy, La Virée makes people dance and sing, in addition to bringing them closer together. With its 4th album in hand, the band members are going back to their roots and picking up some good Acadian songs by adding reels and songs of their own; even more music to party!

This schedule can be modified without notification. If it rains, all activities will take place at CCSA (except the raising of the Acadian flag).
