For the opening night of Vancouver’s 26th Festival d’été francophone, Samuel Sixto invites us to an exceptional performance of some of his favourite musical vignettes. To showcase the wonderful diversity of francophone music, Samuel and his grand piano will share the stage with other artists from British Columbia, as well as a number of musicians from his native Switzerland who will be performing live, thanks to a remarkable audio-visual installation, bringing together long-time musical partners and first-time collaborators. Since his arrival in British Columbia a decade ago, Samuel Sixto has played a major role on Vancouver’s francophone music scene.
A talented and sensitive composer and songwriter, Samuel has performed on many occasions including the Francodôme for the 400th anniversary of Quebec City, the 5×5 tour presented at the Vancouver Olympic Games, Abbyfest, etc. Nominated at the Western Canadian Music Awards, in the “Best francophone album” category, he collaborated in the albums released by Josée Allard, Stéphanie Palazzo, Kim Kuzma, Sam’s Falling…
