Second July concert to feature Les Poules Colin

The second installment of July’s free concert series at Swanny Park kicks off at 5 p.m. Friday, July 12 with Les Poules Colin from Quebec, Canada. The band will bring a unique, modern perspective on traditional Québécois culture. “Their sound is a blend of their strong folk upbringing and North American influences with originals and traditional pieces in both French and English. Songs boast gorgeous vocals and fiddle, lapsteel, banjo, mandolin, piano bass and foot percussion,” said Cassie Paup of the Moab Folk Festival, an event co-sponsor along with the Moab Arts and Recreation Center, KZMU, and Moab Gear Trader.
