Bourque Émissaires are Benoit Bourqua and Antoine Pigeon-Bourque. Benoit is a versatile artist overflowing with energy and a contagious joie de vivre, who has been winning the public over more than 30 years. Charismatic, exuberant, warm, funny, limber, the band’s sparkplug are a few words to describe him. Antoine started playing piano at the age of 11 and accordion at the age of 16. He has degrees from Université de Montréal, where he studied the classical repertoire for piano-accordion, and from Collège Saint-Laurent, in Montreal, where he studied tuba and accordion.
