==La Bolduc, inspired by Irish folklore ==
At the beginning of the 20th century, singer Mary Travers -
more known under the name of [[Wikipedia:La Bolduc|La Bolduc]] - was inspired by Irish folklore. "She spontaneously learns to sing, play the accordion, the violin and the jewish harp to entertain the nights among neighbours where she interprets Irish reels which she intermingles with ''[[turlutes]]'', syllables and the rhythmic sounds in the manner of the Acadians. Without knowing it, by these musical loans that she adapts with great naturalness, she poses the folk bases of the Quebec chanson", claims an Internet site dedicated to the life and work of the first female singer-songwriter of Quebec and French Canada.
