Bonhomme Setter is a musical line-up which has been evolving in the Celtic music sphere since 1998. The flute player and founding member, Sylvain Laberge, is now joined by Marie-Noëlle Harvey (violin, viola), Marie-Pier Gagné (cello), Stéphane Desbiens (guitar), Mathieu Gosselin (bass, double bass) and Andrew Beaudoin (percussion).

Previously associated with Irish musical traditions, today the group blends Celtic music with the diverse rhythms of the world. Spain, Ireland, Brittany and the Middle-East flow together in warm compositions which have a hint of folk.

For their fourth opus ‘’Obia’’ launch in June 2014, the musicians have opted for a juxtaposition of original melodies, folk songs and Irish, Asturian and Breton traditional music. Following in the wake of the third album “Turning Wind”, the tracks on the fourth opus present orchestral arrangements featuring the harmonic richness of the strings, the complementarity of the flutes and the various rhythmic layers of the percussion. Also included is the contribution of Patrick McSweeney, former member of the group, who provided vocals for one song and shared the melancholy of the uilleann pipes with the Irish reel, Man of the House.

From Celtic Life international magazine:

‘’Not quite Quebecois, nor Irish, nor even Acadian, area sextet Bonhomme Setter has brought the best of each to Obia, a stirring and sombre set of 10 terrific original and traditional tunes that speak to the region’s distinct and diverse past.’’ SPC, Celtic life international magazine

Resolved to giving a unique and orchestral sound to traditional music, Bonhomme Setter offers an escape to a mixed musical universe.

For their tour in the USA, the band will have a reduced line-up of 4 musicians. The group will perform their music on wooden flute, fiddle, cello and acoustic guitar.

To hear what they sound like, the band has provide Obia off their new album for you to hear!
