Singer makes international debut tonight in Bermuda

A French Canadian musician will make his international debut right here in Bermuda tonight at the Royal Hamilton Amateur Dinghy Club.

“I am pleased to be given the opportunity to perform outside Quebec, but most importantly, I will always remember Bermuda as my first international experience,” said guitarist Tommy Gagnon. He has come to Bermuda at the invitation of French language and culture organisation Alliance des Française des Bermudes. “I am looking forward to playing a range of songs for the Bermudian community, and I will do my best to accommodate special requests.”

Mr Gagnon is known for his renditions of French hits such as Rosie and Heureux d’un Printemps.

“On the personal front, beside my passion for music, I work in the insurance industry in Quebec and I am also a volleyball trainer and a golfer,” he said. “I can’t wait to also see these beaches and golf courses that Bermuda has to offer. I am proud to be associated with the Alliance for this event. I hear that the Alliance Française sends every year some Bermudian students to France to learn French and expand their horizon. It is good to be part of such great mission.”

Nicky Gurret, of Alliance Française, said it was their mission to promote French culture in Bermuda.

“We are delighted to give the Bermudian community the opportunity to enjoy the French musical performance of this young talented artist from Rimouski, Québec. He has been performing with his guitar from Montreal to Gaspé since 2006.”

She said it would be a great evening and a chance to socialise with other Francophiles.

“It will be at the Royal Hamilton Amateur Dinghy Club, a perfect location to have an enjoyable evening under the stars,” she said.

Tony Bari will also be performing. The show is at 8pm. Tickets are available at Pulp & Circumstance between $30 and $35. Limited tickets will also be available at the door and drinks will be available for purchase. For more information contact contact@alliancefrancaise.bm
