Ronald Bourgeois is considered one of the key influential French speaking singer/songwriters in Atlantic Canada. Originally from Chéticamp, Ronald has inherited the rich musical tradition deeply rooted in the history and culture of Cape-Breton. With simple lyrics and catchy melodies the artist weaves his creative work carefully interlacing imagery and music into engaging musical stories that crossover age and musical genres. It is not surprising that artists from Acadie, Québec, Louisiana as well as France have recorded his songs.
Ronald’s recent offering “ Viens avec moi” was recorded live in concert and features new compositions, songs recorded by other artists but never by Bourgeois, and some audience favourites. Pure and uncluttered, “Viens avec moi”, stays true to the artists Americana francophone musical roots.
The recording highlights Ronald Bourgeois’ ability to weave catchy melodies and simple lyrics into an intensely emotional voyage for his audience.
