Crystal Plamondon has the crowd eating out of her hand, as usual. The franco-Albertan fireball from Plamondon, north of Edmonton, is belting out her brand of “western cowboy pur laine,” interspersed with impromptu tales about childhood, road trips, and the joys of playing music. And joy ripples across the audience, most of them francophones themselves, here at the Museum of Civilization on the banks of the Ottawa River. This architectural masterpiece, designed by Alberta’s Douglas Cardinal, is a national monument, but it also happens to be in Hull, Quebec. Plamondon speaks a twangy western Canadian French, cranked up for effect, and somehow manages to evoke linguistic camaraderie while humouring the audience with her version of Alberta patois.
