Never, Edith Butler celebrated her 80th birthday with loved ones on Wednesday night at the Espace Quatre-Saison bistro at the foot of Mont Orford.

After a bubble happy hour, fifty or so guests went to dinner, but also to a totally special show full of love and talent.

Edith, a real phenomenon, doesn’t age, she’s getting younger and has revamped elements of her musical style so that we feel more “rock” with the same authenticity and the same brilliance in the lyrics. When she sings, she tells stories that are atypical, true, and often earthy.

And when she’s not singing, she still tells herself. This woman, instinctively and voluntarily, only asks to distribute the joy of life around her. The years do not weaken it.

On her 80th birthday, she received a visit from her friend Diane Juster.

She is now surrounded by five musicians and I would be surprised if Julie Jasmine (violin), Dominique Lampron (sound engineer), Philippe Girard (guitar), Maud Bastien (drums) and bassist (guitarist) Louis Thibault is over 35..when Edith is added to the harmonica, It is simply wonderful. In a new wind and you can hear it.

Ms. Butler has battled and overcame four cancers, and when she explains how she went through one of these ordeals, the story ends with a laugh even though she suffered a mastectomy.


Edith Butler is an open book of rich chapters and we are not surprised to learn that this artist has succeeded in seducing and fascinating the planet. First in New Brunswick, Quebec. In the rest of Canada, in the United States. She has given more than 500 shows in Japan and achieved huge success in Paris, England and Ireland.

She builds and renovates, and for her birthday she asked for gifts of bolts, screws and nuts. In the morning, she leaves her home in the Eastern Townships and calls her friend, a crow she names Bacon. He loves bacon. With the most seriousness in the world, Edith talks about the sad pandemic that befell us over two years ago, and one of her most difficult notes is the number of hugs and hugs that have failed during this time. During the worst of the COVID-19 cases, her 98-year-old mother, Loretta, went missing.

She’s talking again

There is also a touching sweetness in its energy.

When you sing the song I say thank you Who is awesome, honest and a big thank you to his partner Liz Obote for the last 49 spent together, he takes hold of your heart, you shiver and knot your throat. A true love letter to her fans also to the one she loves.

Edith Butler surprises us with her origins. While the French Acadée was being abused, Edith’s grandfather, Jean Le Potelier, imitated many French-speaking natives such as the Godin who became the Goodwins, the Labians who became white. Mr. Le Bouthilier decided to become a butler to make sure he got a job. Why the name Edith? Like the midwife who saved his life when he was born. All love stories.

The recipient of the Order of Canada, the Order of New Brunswick, the Order of Merit for French Culture etc. will be on tour in Quebec starting next October.
