Under the circumstances, it is difficult to ask for a more successful reunion of the Summer Festival. While 80,000 people were shouting at Abraham Ground, the Spiritual Principle for 500 spectators at the Armory fulfilled its promises on Thursday evening.

Sanitation, the reunion was modest, but the evening was as warm as the stars, Ludovic bourgeoisie and 2 freers.
Before the kick-off we felt some excitement as the festival goers took their places at the tables allotted to them.
“We’re bored,” programming director Louis Bellavens agreed in a short speech before the first concert at 6.30pm.
“I’m still stressed,” Ludovic Borgois admitted, a few moments later putting his guitar around his neck.
Took a bit of rust. Despite the enthusiastic cries of some fans before, the first part of the Ludovic bourgeois show, composed mainly with the songs from his first two albums, raised very few sparks.
Take possession of the flame
Everything changed when Pitru was the valuable bearer of the flame, the winner Vani 2017, in duet with guitarist Guillaume Doiran, Bibila’s big hits.
The effect was immediate, and above all, Ludovic’s voice resembled that of his late father, Patrick.
We feel that the son has a real attachment to these songs, to which he gives his color without distortion. “He’s so happy to hear you sing them,” he told the audience Give me a chance And You are on the moon.
As this moment unfolded, the fianc నాన్న ended up strong with his own successes How is my life And Desert song. “Thank you for this completely magical evening,” he said, moving visually, his hand over his heart.
2 Fake Brothers
Still very popular 2Frères worked overtime. In addition to their concert at the end of the evening, in front of Place George-V, during lunch, they were instructed to reopen the poppeck.
The gloomy atmosphere and FEQ ban to promote the surprise date, however, limited the audience, with a few dozen fans singing along with the Koutet brothers.
Later, in the comfort of the Armory, the friendly duo came true for themselves. Armed with 1 radio number concerts, 2 Frasers provided an almost flawless scene, but it took time to grow.
Like the Ludovic bourgeoisie, Spark was created by the fair insertion of two covers: astonishing loans Something, To the Beatles, but most of all electrified reconstruction Yakshaganam by Jean Batilloor. Sony Coyote and Dmitry Label-Alexander band guitar solo moved the audience.
“Thank you for coming here again, for going out to see the performances, for keeping our Quebec culture alive,” said Eric Kout, who certainly echoes all the artists going on the road this summer.
We finally had a great evening, but we have to admit that exploring the desolate Abraham plains through the armory windows caused me heartache.
Roll on 2022!
On Friday evening, at the same place and at the same time, it will be the turn of Cour de Pirate and Chloe Pelgog to reconnect with the audience of the Summer Festival.
