   Hammock in the sails - Félix Leclerc’s sea
(Until August 19th 2015)   

Félix Leclerc, who paved the way for our poetsongwriters, loved the sea and particularly the Gaspé. He would come here to sing, of course, but also to “drop anchor” anonymously, to relax, walk along the beach, strike up a conversation on a wharf… This love of the sea and the Gaspé is apparent in many of his songs, tales and poetic stories. Birds, islands and ships wend their way through the poet’s work, symbolic of his search for love, hope and liberty. In 2014, to salute the one hundredth anniversary of Félix Leclerc’s birth, the Musée de la Gaspésie will remove the veil from a little-known side of this great Québec artist – his love of the sea, the scenery and the people of the sea.
