Born in Montreal
(Canada), I spent the greatest part of my childhood in the town
of Grande-Côte. A mother who listened to Elvis Presley
and sang with her brother, a father who was a great fan of Louis
Armstrong, and champion dancer in his youth. In my parents' home,
traditional songs were an important part of every holiday. Singing
makes you want to make music with an instrument.. So I went ahead
with an old dream and devoted myself to learning the pipes. It
is through the pipes that I came to the old continent and the
old country. In France I studied under J. Blanchard, E. Girardon,
B. Letron, and A. Tovi.
I met up with
the snow and La Kinkerne in mysterious Savoie . . .
I like pancakes with whipped cream and fresh blueberries . .
Voice, tin whistles,
clarinets, bagpipes, percussion.
Robert also has
a "one-man show",
Gédéon Tranche-Montagne (The Story of Gedeon the Mountain-slicer)
Tales, songs, bagpipes and cooking all rolled into one, because
as he sings and tells tall tales Robert prepares a meal that
he shares with the spectators at the conclusion of the show!
For all and any
information, to set up a show, please contact Robert Amyot by
