Jean-Pierre Ferland was born on June 24, 1934 in Montreal.
In 2021, Jean-Pierre Ferland talked about La Butte and Gilles Mathieu:
“It started out in a very small way. I think I was one of the first there. His place was different, less snobby. It was our theatre. It was very nice.”
“I must have had a dozen songs written. That was it. I was singing by myself. I was shaking like a leaf. It was very small, not much space. But he looked after us well. He was doing us a favour. These Laurentian theatres were very pleasant. We could sing our songs, and we felt at home.”
