Maurice “Moe” Hashie

 He is also a certified life coach and has been delivering life coaching workshops in communities all across the nation, both in French and English since 2011. 
Moe is married to the love of his life Natalie, and has 4 beautiful children. Marissa, Andrew, Nate and Liam.” 

Louise and Jonny Ray Arsenault
“Louise Arsenault has had a long impressive career in music, playing the fiddle in traditional/folk settings all over the world. Her part in the group Barachois is a highlight to her long list of projects, taking to all 4 corners of the planet with her vibrant and energetic fiddle playing and feet stomping. Louise is one of the founders of the bands Les Girls and Gadelle and over the years she has also performed individually, together and with numerous other musical artists. Louise moves easily from fiddle to guitar, foot percussion, harmonica, piano, dancing and mandolin. With this being said, she also teaches all of those mentioned. There are those who claim that, if you watch her fiddle playing closely, you just might see the smoke rising from her bow.”

“Jonathon Arsenault is a jester of modern times. Always clowning around, you wonder how his music could be taken seriously…Until you hear him play. He Started playing violin like his mother but ended up settling on acoustic guitar along with whatever instrument is at his disposal. He is your favourite house party jammer who will make you laugh and then make you cry with envy with his repertoire of Traditional music, Country, and Classic rock. He will find the niche to please all.”
