A musician with multiple horizons, Sébastien Deshaies finds himself at a crossroads by approaching, in his own right, the classical guitar as well as the traditional Quebec violin. It is on these two instruments that he expresses himself with so much passion and rigor. A versatile artist with a personal musical playing and very well asserted, SébastienDeshaies is certainly an instrumentalist to discover…. 


  • “… a convincing demonstration of his mastery of the capricious instrument with an impressive technique … the technical quality of his playing marked by a certain virtuosity but at the service of a very musical interpretation. Without being stupidly chauvinistic, we can say that Sébastien Deshaies is a tribute to his part of the country. ”
