    Taking their name from a traditional song, Colin’s Hens (formed in 2009) are five descendants of trad musicians who have been raised behind the scenes of folk festivals. They learned their trade with some of Quebec’s greatest traditional musicians in an area famous for its living heritage: Lanaudière.

    Their strong stage presence demonstrates a contagious pleasure and projects the audience in a family and festive atmosphere. It is in 2010 that they record their first album. It is with Hébertisme Nocturne that they take to the stage in major cities in Canada, the United States and France, including festivals such as the Winnipeg Folk Festival, the Tadoussac Song Festival, the Sunfest , the Memory and Roots Festival, and many others.

    These young artists continue their work of creation and record in 2014 their second album, Ste-Waves. The latter was nominated at ADISQ 2015 in the category Traditional Album of the Year. Broadcast on Quebec, the album has become a hit in record stores and the official video has exceeded 35,000 views. Ste-Waves has earned them a place on the North American and European folk trades scene by playing in several major festivals such as the Vancouver Folk Festival, Celtic Connections, the Vancouver Island Music Festival, the Festival du Voyageur and the International Festival. from Louisiana.
