Dans l’Shed, a folk-Americana duo comprised of Gaspesian guitarists Eric Dion and André Lavergne, will perform at Alexandria's Salle La Fraternité September 28.

In 2015, Dans l'Shed released Rivière Rouge, their first full-length studio album, under the label Le Grenier musique. Co-directed by Dany Placard and recorded at Studio Tracadièche in Carleton-sur-mer, Rivière Rouge was listed by Ici musique as one of the top 50 best albums of 2015. After the album’s release, the duo toured throughout Québec, Ontario, Manitoba, Alberta, New Brunswick, France, Belgium and Switzerland. In May 2017, the band received the Export Québec prize at the Trille Or gala in Ottawa. This distinction is awarded every year to the group from Québec that is judged to have had the most impact throughout French Canada.
