Jerry and Jo’Anne

This Canadian country music duo became popular in Quebec in 1968. Gérald Robitaille (b. 9 Feb 1942, Sherbrooke, Quebec, Canada, d. 21 March 1996, Cookshire, Quebec, Canada; fiddle/metal guitar), didn’t decide upon a profession in music before past due 60s. Jo’Anne Moreault (b. c.1948, Canada; vocals), decided a solo profession until an opportunity ending up in Robitaille. They started recording together, setting up down monitors in Nashville, Tennessee, which, unusually for the proper execution, they not merely sang in British but also in French (their 1971 debut premiered in French and British variations). They made an appearance on tv in Nashville but chiefly in Canada where in addition they appeared at nation music concerts. Jerry And Jo’Anne also controlled their very own label, Daisy Information, presenting their very own music, a few of which was compiled by Robitaille. In 1982 their Jerry And Jo’Anne gained Quebec province’s Félix Prize as Best Nation & Western Record Of THE ENTIRE YEAR. Shortly thereafter the duo proceeded to go their separate methods, with Robitaille savoring a locally effective profession as the Hill Man.
