The audience will be treated to new as well as old Charlebois songs. Unforgettable classics such as “Lindberg,” “Je Reviendrai à Montréal,” “Ordinaire,” “Vivre en ce Pays,” “J’t’aime Comme un Fou,” “Les Talons Hauts,” and more will join other tricks Charlebois has up his sleeve.


    Robert Charlebois –
    An author, composer, musician, performer, and actor from Quebec, Robert Charlebois has become an essential pop figure over the course of his 50-year career, throughout the French-speaking world. Among his best-known songs are “Lindberg” and “Je Reviendrai à Montréal.” One of the most enduring figures in Quebec rock history, Charlebois started as a poetic folk singer, shocked Quebec by next turning to an extreme psychedelic rocker, came back to a singer-songwriter credo, then evolved over time into an adult pop rock star. In celebrating his 50-year career anniversary, the busy 69-years-young Charlebois filled 2013 with European tours, an unforgettable tribute show at the Francofolies de Montréal Festival, a tour of Quebec, and a role in the film Gabrielle.

    During his extremes in the late ‘60s, he was known for scandalous anti-shows where he would scream, swear, and wear outrageous costumes onstage. Charlebois’ lyrics, often written in Joual (Quebec French), are funny, relying upon plays on words. He was among the first artists to introduce irony in Québécois songs, using rock, blues and country melodies.

    Over the years, Charlebois has received numerous awards and distinctions. Honors include the Prix de l’Académie Charles-Cros, a Gold Medal at the Olympiades de la Chanson, the Prix de la Ville de Paris, the Médaille de Vermeil de l’Académie Française, and the Governor General of Canada’s Performing Arts Award. The ADISQ (the Quebec recording industry academy) awarded Charlebois a Félix Hommage in 1993 for his career (the equivalent of a Lifetime Achievement Grammy). Charlebois also acted in a few television series early in his career and, as a businessman, revolutionized the world of Quebec microbreweries with his company Unibroue (makers of beers La Maudite and La Fin du Monde) in the ‘90s.
