Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - June 5, 1974, Lethbridge, Alberta Numerous singers, musicians trained in last decade Quebec has lots of musicial talent By IAIN MacLEOD MONTREAL (CP) Que- bec has nurtured a horde of talented musicians and sing- ers in the last decade, many of whom ventured little farther than La Belle Province during their careers. Several, notably Charlebois and Pagharo, hammered hard and long on the English-Cana- dian door to sell their records in moderate volume in other parts of Canada. But a Que- bec artist or group has yet to make a killing in this market. The times may be a-chang- ing, however, with the arrival on the rock music scene of the Ville Emard Blues Band, an extraordinary assembly of 18 polished musicians In less than a year, they have over- whelmed the Quebec market. Unlike many of their con- temporaries and predeces- sors, Ville Emard is not pre- pared to stop at that. Already the band has attracted a rare interest outside the province and indications are that when they take to the road on their Canada-wide tour later this year, audiences will be stand- ing on their seats as the huge sound of Ville Emard is un- leashed on stage Word of Ville Emard has also spread to the United States where the search for something different to edge onto the lucrative rock mar- ket intensifies daily. Ville Emard is indeed something different. Aside from the vast array of musi- cians playing and singing in thrilling harmony and rhythm, Ville Emard suc- ceeds in creating the atmos- phere of a musical party in which the audience plays an equal part. "When we perform a con- cert, we invite people to a says Bill Gagnon, one of three bass guitarists in the band. "This is what we al- ways try to get across. The party feeling is the whole spark of Ville Emard and without it the band would lose its impetus, digress and prob- ably collapse." Ville Emard recently com- pleted its first major outing, a 30-date tour of Quebec which included a triumphant ap- pearance at the Montreal Fo- rum, long reserved for upper- echelon musicians. That concert marked the efforts and tensions of more than six months' hard labor, served to form, rehearse and polish Ville Emard which, Gagnon says, "was far from the easiest band to put to- gether, let alone keep to- gether." The tensions and frustra- tions still are there as Ville Emard explores and expands the huge spaces of music they are capable of playing. The variety of their current reper- toire is mind-boggling. The Forum concert opened with almost 45 minutes of pumping, punch rock which swung from one set of in- struments to another. Backed by a battery of three basses, three guitars, three pianos and three drum sets, Ville Emard lifts off with dynamic performances on trumpets, saxophones, flutes, organs, even congas and other vari- ous percussive instruments. Topping this vast array of sound are several male and female singers who inject bite and intensity into the songs. The band then splits into several smaller units to dem- AGT net income higher DIETRICH DENTURE CLINIC ROSS HOSACK Certified Dental Mechanic 8 304 5th St. S.

The repertoire includes a com- plicated jazz arrangement, a gutsy blues melody and a re- freshing folk set. Ville Emard then winds up the concert by pooling its resources again to blast into another dynamic rock sound. "I feel one of the reasons we should appeal to audiences outside Quebec is that our sound is not singer Carlyle Miller said. "It's not a North American or English sound either. It's just music." But far from being disloyal to its French-Canadian ties, Ville Emard hopes that any success it may enjoy outside Quebec will serve to free the flow of musicians between English-speaking and French- speaking Canada. Quebec forms a vital part of the Canadian music industry. It sells 75 per cent more records than the rest of Canada but because of an in- ability for the two cultures to cross-communicate a barrier exists. "Little has been done in the past to promote a French-Ca- nadian band in English Can- ada because the Quebec mar- ket is so Miller said. But with interest in Ville Emard firmly rooted among promoters outside Quebec, the band's forthcoming appearances in Toronto, Vancouver, Ottawa and other English-Canadian music centres may begin to loosen the foundations of the barrier which has hampered the progress of Canadian music for years.

(CP) Mixed reviews greeted the Stratford Festival's first pro- duction of its 22nd season, Mo- liere's The Imaginary Invalid, directed by Jean Gascon and starring William Hutt and Pat Galloway. Associated Press drama critic William Glover called it a "slambang romp a laugh- packed cure for any ailment excepf 2 cracked lip." But Montreal and Toronto drama critics found it over- acted and too dependent on bodily ills for wit in good taste. The last; he died after his fourth perform- ance as Argan, the hypochon- given a fast-paced, colorful portrayal by the Stratford company. It won critical acclaim in its Australian tour earlier this year. And Gov.-Gen. Jules Leger gave his personal accolade to his old friend Mr. Gascon. When the retiring artistic director invited the Governor- General backstage after Monday night's opening performance, Mr Leger embraced him in the French fashion on both cheeks. The festival continues tonight with a revival of last year's production of Pericles, one of Shakespeare's last plays. Wednesday, it opens a new production of Love's Labor's Lost. In the Moliere work, the festival again had the services of its first designer, Tanya Moiseiwitsch. A special exhibit of her work over the last two decades is being staged this summer at Stratford's City hall. One of her, and director Gascon's difficulties, in The Imaginary Invalid is that all of the action takes place in the hypochondriac Argan's bedroom. The Stratford stage was designed by Miss JWoiseiwitsch originally to 'facilitate transitions among many supposed settings. For this, she set the balcony CN expects heavy B.C. rail traffic VANCOUVER (CP) Canadian National Railways expects future heavy traffic through British Columbia which will overwhelm its single track mainline between Edmonton and Vancouver, says company president and chief executive Robert A. Bandeen. He said that nationally the CNR system is forecast as winning a 40 per cent freight traffic increase over the next five years. This business will not be equally apportioned to all parts of the system and B.C. will in some years see a 25 per cent rise in freight tonnage, he said. Mr. Bandeen said capital spending is being boosted about 100 per cent to cope with the predicted rise in freight traffic. The laying of a second track between Edmonton and Vancouver, to parallel the existing line or to carve out a Iresh transportation corridor, is a possibility, he said. Another option for easing traffic pressure on the existing mainline, he said, is to funnel more business through the north coast B.C Port of Pnnce Rupert, via CNR's norther 3me which runs CONSORTIUM KITCHENER. Ont P B Mason, president of B. F Goodnch Canada Ltd says 1he company is participating in a consortium assembled by Alberta Gas Trunk Line Co Lid (AGTL) of Calgary to build a polrof heroical p3ant in westwards through Prince George. Mr. Bandeen said in an interview the railway faces a huge demand for additional freight cars and next year should be taking delivery of the largest number of freight cars received within any 12 month period since i960.

Miss Galloway, playing Ar- gan's housemaid Toinette, was as pert and high-handed with her master as Mohere demands in the part. Myron Galloway of the Mon- treal Star wrote that the pro- duction was heavy-handed, with every line blatantly delivered and every bit of mugging emphasized, but said it was apparent the audience was in no mood to be critical. Dave Billington of the Mon- treal Gazette found Mr Hutt "stomped and roared and trampled his way through the dialogue like an elephant with gout" Few papers urge Nixon resignation NEW YORK (Reuter) A survey of 125 leading United States newspapers shows that only one out of four has urged President Nixon to resign and that only 15 have called for his impeachment by the House of Representatives as a result of the Watergate political espionage scandal. The study, by the publication Editorials on File, says of the 32 newspapers calling for Nixon to resign, eight endorsed his re-election in 1972 and six others endorsed Democrat George McGovern Only nine of the newspapers surveyed "have continued to support President Nixon without significant reservations." the study says "The approximately 50 other papers thai were surveyed were fenerally critical of liie president's refusal to hand over all the to the House judir ommiltee. but did not jficalh conclude whri' or nol he should give Up IliC JIM BROWN '.ESCAPED FROM DEVIL'S ISLAND CHRISTOPHER GEORGE R Hit.
