Born in New Brunswick in 1990, LeBlanc has Acadian roots and performs in French. She’s been active as an artist for a few years now, and in 2013 released her self-titled debut album which she wrote and recorded in Granby, QC and Montreal.
Tonight, LeBlanc is in town to play a show at the Artesian. The gig is being presented by the Regina Folk Festival in partnership with Le Conseil Culturel Fransaskois and Association Canadienne-Française de Regina. Backing LeBlanc up is violinist/fiddler Veronique Poulin who is best known to local audiences as one quarter of the Saskatoon rock band Young Benjamins.
Tickets are $20 advance and $25 at the door, and the show should get going at 8 p.m. You can find more information on the RFF website, and to give you a sense of what to expect here’s the video for LeBlanc’s song “Aujourd’hui, ma vie c’est d’la marde” off her debut album:
