ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
Whenever you hear the Benoits you'll always be moved in every sense of the word by the stellar musicianship and wonderful spirit that continues through their music both new or old. 

Rooted in the traditional music of Newfoundland's Port au Port area, the Benoits sound is a melange of French, Irish and Scottish influences. Featuring Mattis Benoit on accordion and his son Doug on the fiddle, the band is rounded out by Doug's son Devon on drums and guitar and Mattis's grandson Shane Blanchard on bass.

Their debut album takes you back to the days of old with tracks such as 'La Farine' (the title track), a story told by Doug's grandmother Florence Leprieur about life 'sur la Cap' set to a musical backdrop. The album also showcases the band's contemporary colours with original compositions by another of Mattis's sons Robert Benoit and a set of tunes written by the youngest members of the band Shane and Devon.
