Butch B (Gabriel Bouchard)

Take Note! Music House, address given upon reservation, Barrie, ON

The summer/fall “welcome back” series at the Take Note! Music House continues, with “Butch B” – better known to the TNMH audience as Gabriel Bouchard, who last appeared here as part of the band Outside I’m a Giant. This will be on Friday, September 8 at 7:30 pm (doors – or garden gate – open at 7:00). Weather/bugs permitting, the concert will be on the back patio, or will be moved inside with windows wide open.

Suggested donation is $20, or pay-what-you-can, but reservations are required – please email concerts@takenotepromotion.com or call 705-305-1687 to book your seat and get the address. (A private home, just east of Barrie City Hall.)

Gabriel was originally booked to perform here in April, 2020 as “Clôde”, so we’re happy to be able to bring him back, whichever name he’s performing under! “Butch B” will be joined for a few numbers by cellist Alyssa Wright – who was 1/2 of the “Frizzen Spring” concert in February, 2020, the last TNMH show before you-know-what. Bookends upon bookends…

Butch B

“Butch B” is the stage name of singer-songwriter and multi-instrumentalist Gabriel Bouchard, a core member of the Quebec band “Outside I’m A Giant”.

Hailing from Digby, Nova Scotia and growing up all over Canada, Butch B picked up songs here and there all along the way. Sometimes he plays them as written, but often he turns them into another song altogether. Come discover some new songs and some old songs made anew.
