It was in the furrows of Portneuf County that the idea for Carotté was born in 2013 under the leadership of Médé Langlois. This colorful character is the proud descendant of a line of farmers established along the Chemin du Roy since 1667, and today he continues the ancestral tradition by cultivating the land. From the beginning, folk music has animated the family farm and brought together the inhabitants of the surrounding area. Since childhood, Médé has been immersed in this cultural heritage before discovering punk rock in high school. Seemingly far apart, these two musical currents were ostracized in their respective eras while exalting the same participatory values. Médé naturally nourished the desire to associate them. This desire became a reality after he met Les Quéteux, a group that regularly performs at a local market. To this traditional trio composed of Manuel Lavallée (banjo, harmonica, acoustic guitar, Jew's harp), Étienne Bourré-Denis (fiddle, mandolin, Jew's harp, clapper) and Simon Lavallée (bass) are added two survivors of the punk band Eric Panic: Éric Roberge (vocals) and Max Doré (drums).Website
