Coeur de Pirate will be performing during the Quebec City Summer Festival, with the Canadian group Hedley in first part, July 10, on the big stage of the Plains of Abraham.
Coeur de Pirate will not be at her first participation in the Quebec City Summer Festival. She took part in it in 2009 for the first time and in 2013 on the Loto-Québec’s scene at the Parc de la Francophonie. This time, the Summer Festival organization gave her the honor to award her the artistic freedom formula, called “carte blanche”, on the big Bell Stage of the Plains of Abraham. A unique evening is ahead of us!
Beatrice Martin, aka Coeur de Pirate is currently touring around with her latest bilingual album Roses. The tour leads her across Quebec and in the rest of Canada, the US and Europe. For instance, it will take her to the Festivoix in Trois-Rivières June 26, in Ottawa at the Blues Fest on July 8 and at Osheaga in Montreal on July 30.
With the success that is currently experiencing the Roses album, Coeur de Pirate wins unquestionably popularity, and, either with the Francophone and Anglophone public. Titles such as “Carry On” and its French version “Oublie-moi” and “Crier Tout Bas” turn much on commercial radios.
The last show of Coeur de Pirate in Quebec City was back in March, where she offered a breathtaking performance to a full house at the Grand Theatre of Quebec on March 24. She also gave a concert at the Metropolis the day before which was also sold out. All this suggest a large crowd next July 10th!
