Éric St-Pierre

 

Born at Saint-Pierre-de-la-rivière-du-sud(1), in 1969.

A virtuoso (Mr. St-Pierre has been playing accordion since he was 3!), and a very prolific and talented composer (and a very charming fellow to boot), it is quite surprising not to see him perform more often at various festivals.

He has studied under the famous accordeonist Marcel Messervier (to whom he dedicated the Reel de la boutique , for the long hours spend in his shop) and Martin Connelly (another famous accordionist player/maker, from Ireland).

Mr. St-Pierre played in numerous groups, such as Chantier (2000-2001) — with which he performed in Cuba, the group Lustukru (1997-2000), the Troupe du Vieux-moulin (1996-1999) — with which he made a tour of England, and with the Orchestre Gamache (1986-1996).

Many of his pieces are now standards in various sessions (such as Le voyage and the Reel à Ti-Bé).

You can hear him play some of his compositions on two self-produced CDs(2) (seer Discography).

For those who would like to invite Mr. St-Pierre at an event, he can be reached at 418-248-2191, or by e-mail at ericstpierre120@gmail.com
