In his work, Audet, who hails from Deep River, explores the heritage of the Ottawa Valley in songs that touch on farms, flooded villages, taken lands, and frontier roads. His most recent work, Those Days, was released in March of this year. A full 12-song folk music album, its songs range from traditional folk to Canadian roots and contemporary folk.  It was recorded at Pembroke’s Bob’s Music Plus, and features some of the Ottawa Valley best-known musicians.

Audet had previously release a debut album, The River, in 2015, followed by Forgotten Memories of the Ottawa Valley, in 2021, and Open Water, in December 2023. 

“My hope is that many people across Canada,” he said in an interview, “will take an interest in learning and experiencing the rich history and long heritage of the Ottawa Valley.” 

The afternoon event will be preceded by a short annual general meeting. 

The Bromley Historical Society is honoured to welcome Marc Audet and deeply shares his belief that it is important to speak about our history to keep it alive for future generations.
