Serre l’Écoute is a group of three singers, musicians and songs collectors: Gabrielle Bouthillier, Liette Remon and Robert Bouthillier (Gabrielle’s father). They sing mostly songs coming from their own collections and try to stay as close as possible to the traditionnal expertise and style. They sing a cappella, most of the time, and when they add some polyphonic and/or instrumental colors, they are careful to do so without distorting the original spirit of their material.

They have been singing together for 5 years and started by an exploration of the maritime repertoire from Québec and Acadie (They are to this day the only band of maritime music in Québec). Chansons des bords du Saint-Laurent, Serre l’Écoute’s first album, was released in May 2002 and is a fine collection of maritime songs from the shores of the St. Lawrence River. Since then, they have been invited to perform in very important Sea Shanty Festivals : Mystic Seaport, CT; Paimpol, France; Workum, Netherlands; Saint-Jean-Port-Joli, Québec; Chicago, IL.

Fortunes et perditions, their most recent album, was born in may 2006 and casts an eye on the many turmoils of human destiny.

Serre l'Écoute presently works on a third project intitled Philosophical Drinkers : a recollection of poetical drinking songs from the oral tradition.
