The Registry Theatre
Traditional and modern folk music from a great Franco-Ontarian quartet. These song-tinkerers enthusiastically plunder from the repertoire of French songs handed down by their Quebecois, French, and Belgian ancestors. For good measure, Irish roots are also invoked, and American, European and African influences are added. Since their stage debut at the Francophonie en Fête festival in Toronto in 2013, Welcome Soleil has pilfered from Francis Cabrel, shoplifted from Félix Leclerc and pillaged from Zachary Richard – all done with love and humour, while keeping the beauty of the originals at the heart of the new arrangements. Welcome Soleil plays their funky French folk for francophones and anglophones alike, always keeping things fun! Welcome Soleil is Guy Smagghe (voice, guitars, harmonica), Philippe Lafaury (guitars, mandolin, vocals), Richard Morgan (bass, vocals) and Paddy Morgan (drums, percussion, vocals). A Registry Theatre partnership with L’Association des Francophones de Kitchener–Waterloo.
