Andrew Roblin est un multi-instrumentiste accompli originaire du Manitoba. À 19 ans il part pour Nashville Tennessee pour y rouler sa bosse. 30 ans plus tard il aura transporté avec lui, dans les Amériques, cette affection pour la langue française et la culture du Québec. Au cours de son plus récent passage à Montréal, il désira prendre un morceau du Québec avec lui, tout en laissant une petite signature derrière lui. L’idée de jouer une pièce de Félix au Pedal Steel a germé et nous avons fait ce vidéo. Le choix de pièce visait plus à laisser un aurevoir senti qu’à faire l’étalage d’une prouesse flamboyante dont pourtant Andrew est bien capable!

Andrew Roblin is an accomplished multi-instrumentalist born in Manitoba, who moved to Nashville Tennessee at age 19. In his 30-year journey to America, he carried with him a deep fondness of the French language and of Quebec’s culture. Andrew visits Montreal, Canada on a regular basis and at the end of summer 2014 he wished to bring a piece of Quebec with him while leaving a signature behind. The decision was made with him to pick a deeply rooted song in the contemporary French culture of Quebec: Bozo by Felix Leclerc. Rather than a flamboyant performance showcasing the technique and skills of the musician, it was a more profound statement: A warmhearted farewell to Quebec, a spot on Earth which is part of the planetary home of Andrew Roblin.
