Marie Comeau

If you?re a bluegrass fan who attends festivals in the Maritime Provinces, and Maine, you should know Marie and Severe Comeau of Neguac, New Brunswick.

Rain or shine the two were always sitting in the front row supporting the entertainers on stage.

And when the music was over on stage, you would find them at a jam somewhere on the grounds playing their Martin guitars and singing their songs.

Marie and Severe received the Bluegrass Fan Of The Year Award , on two occasion for their support of the music.

Marie appeared on open mike, Severe did whenever he could get someone to back him up.

If I was in attendance, Severe would always ask me to play bass for him, and I never refused him.

Marie was diagnosed of having an inoperable fast growing brain tumour early December, and passed away on January 01, 2007.

She will be sadly missed by her family; friends and the many, many bluegrass friends she made throughout the years that she and Severe followed the music.
