Antoine Sicotte & Keifer Sutherland at Grill & Country, presented by Tremblant Gourmand
A rebel chef juggling a stoked grill, Jonathan Roy's acoustic duo, Jack Bauer does country and entertainment and activities from the mountain's summit to its pedestrian village -- now that's a Father's Day scenario that will be long remembered. All weekend long, Place Saint-Bernard becomes a hot spot for the Tremblant Gourmand team, in collaboration with village restaurateurs. On the menu are gourmet experiences hot off the grill along with discovery platters and surprise tastings. A must-attend: Antoine Sicotte, a.k.a. the King of BBQ, concocts divine morsels as he shares grilling tips and tricks on Saturday June 18, at 11 am and 3 pm.
Kiefer Sutherland brings his rich, soulful vocals and guitar licks to Tremblant Saturday, June 18 at 9 pm when he performs with a set list that includes cuts from his forthcoming Americana-tinged album, Down In A Hole, set for release this summer. It will be a not-to-be missed free performance during his Québec tour. Sutherland's sound is a mix of country with hints of famous bad boys Johnny Cash, Bob Seger and Kris Kristofferson. Jonathan Roy, whose music career has now meshed with Corey Hart's, plays the opening set in a ripping blend of pop, rock, indie and folk.
