Maison Fairbairn House Presents their summer concert series, this year streaming from their beautiful heritage barn.
Tune in this week at 7:30 PM for a performance by Bill & Coo here.
Laurence Thibault and Christian Rey-Coquais have been musical partners for twenty years. Laurence trained in musical theatre at Southern Oregon University. Christian studied jazz guitar at the Jazz Conservatory of Lyon, France. They first played together in a jazz vocal ensemble, La Horde Vocale, in France where their common interest for Bossa Nova and soft swing led them to create a duo. Since moving to the Ottawa-Gatineau area in the early 2000’s, they have performed in the Ottawa region with a trio called Bossa Com Beijos, offering a mix of Brazilian, English and French songs. Christian has also played with local bands and musicians, such as the Jim and Tonic Quintet, Adrian Cho, Greg Stone and Marc Decho. Christian performs monthly at the Kaffe 1870 in Wakefield with the Village Quartet, offering jazz and blues standards. In 2019, Laurence and Christian were guest artists at the Mill Road Community Space in Chelsea.
