This highly talented 28 year old from Quebec has captured numerous music awards thanks to her remarkable voice and stage presence.
In 2014, she won the Barbara Prize and the Grand Prix de la Francophonie awarded by the Charles Cros Academy. In November 2016 Klô Pelgag released her latest album entitled “L’Étoile thoracique”, which was hailed by critics, and went on to win several honours and prizes in 2017.
Opening for Klo Pelgag is Julie Kim. She is originally from Quebec and has become very well known on the Tornto music scene since her arrival here 20 years ago. She will perform popular and new pieces from her brand new album ‘Perspectives’.
