Album abundant, abounding show.
This is the equation that those who formulate, starting Thursday, will witness three sorties flown by Bernard Adamus in Saguenay-Lac-Saint-Jean. He will point to the first Hopera Jonquière, which shows full before playing Meteor Dolbeau-Mistassini and Box Blueberries Alma, Friday and Saturday.
This will be his first visit since the one that followed the launch of Sorel Soviet So What? in autumn. The artist then went to Chicoutimi Sous-Bois, which had a full house on two occasions. To say that this recording of great interest, there is not one that can cross cheerfully.

This piece deserves attention because it was the subject of a video broadcast last Tuesday. Julien Poulin has a role there and the finished product pleases Bernard Adamus. “Sometimes it works well, and other times less, but him, I find it very beautiful. I found this trippy, too, to work with Julien Poulin, “says the singer.
