RUMFORD — Montreal’s lively trio Bon Débarras sets stage for jigs, dances and some blazing body percussions, because their distinctive physical atmosphere embedded in their music is definitely a band trademark. They will bring this to the stage at 49 Franklin’s Mystic Theater on Sunday, Nov. 4.

Drawing their inspiration from the rich traditions of French-speaking North America, the depth of the musical atmospheres is carried by the musicians’ versatility and proficiency on a panoply of instruments – guitar, banjo, fiddle, viola, harmonica, Jew’s harp and ukulele.

With their latest album, “En panne de silence,” Bon Débarras moves boldly into a repertoire that is almost entirely original, steeped in poetry and rhythmic urban sounds. More innovative than ever, the trio remains true to the rhythms of French-speaking America with those unambiguous Quebec flavors supported by a newcomer — the fiddle. 

Doors open for the show at 6 p.m. for seating, social, cash-only pub menu and cash bar. Show is at 7 p.m. Go to the right side of the building and go to the upper back entrance to the Mystic Theater. Advance tickets are $15, available at All That Jazz and Bartash’s in downtown Rumford, or online at www.49franklin.com. Tickets day-of-show are $20.
