Détournement Majeur – 2016 Reissue

In 1991, Jean-Paul Loyer and André Marchand released Détournement Majeur, a collection of instrumental music played on the guitar featuring traditional tunes from Quebec as well as compositions by the two members of the duo. American multi-instrumentalist Pete Sutherland was invited to build arrangements around the guitar tracks, while always keeping them as the focus. The resulting album was produced in small quantities and quickly sold out. Since then, the few copies in circulation have attained mythical status, being passed from one listener to another over the years. After a 25-year detour, thanks to the efforts of Les Productions de l’Homme-Renard, Détournement Majeur is finally available again.
