MONTREAL – Karl Tremblay, the lead singer with one of Quebec’s most beloved bands, has died at the age of 47.
His group, Les Cowboys Fringants, shared the news of his death in a social media post this afternoon.
Tremblay announced in July 2022 that he had been diagnosed with prostate cancer.
He continued to perform with the folk-rock band while undergoing chemotherapy, including a historic performance before 90,000 people at the Festival d’été in Quebec City in July.
The band later postponed all of its performances scheduled for this fall.
Les Cowboys Fringants wrote on social media that Tremblay was a role model and an “exemplary warrior” in the face of illness.
