Breakaway broadcasts across the province of Quebec on CBC Radio One. Based in our Sherbrooke bureau, we cover the stories and introduce you to people from the Gaspé to the Abitibi to the Lower North Shore. We bring you information, energy, and fun all with a Quebec twist.
If you head North on highway 175 out of Quebec City, you'll soon find yourself in what's known as Le Parc. Eventually, you'll arrive in Le Royaume du Saguenay and in a town called Chicoutimi. It's the starting point for a band called Chassepareil. The band is made up of a group of friends that came together to make music that ended up being inspired by where they're from. Breakaway guest host talks about their new album with one of the members of the band, Alexandrine Rodrigue.
