Biography

Memramcook, New Brunwick, Canada

The Bluegrass Diamonds are a traditional bluegrass ensemble based out of New Brunswick, Canada. The band and individual members have been and nominated for and won several regional Canadian awards. They have released seven albums in both English and French.

Francis Cormier formed the Original Bluegrass Diamonds in 1984 with his brother, Vincent, and Roger Hebert, soon after to be joined by Jim Warren. For nearly 5 years the Bluegrass Diamonds practiced relentlessly, did a few of the local festivals, benefits and whatever they could do to get exposure. It paid off, because they got to know the legendary Eddy Poirier of the famed Bluegrass 4. With the departure of Russell Sawler, Ron Savoie and Eddy’s son, Robert, in 1989 Eddy, asked Francis and Vincent Cormier and Roger Hebert if they’d consider joining the band on vocals and guitar, vocals and bass, and mandolin respectively. The Bluegrass `4`, being an inspiration to many of the up and coming young pickers, was no less an inspiration to Francis, Vincent and Roger - opportunity was kicking them in the face! The Bluegrass `4`was now Eddy Poirier, Roger Hebert and Francis and Vincent Cormier, until Roger left and Louis Arsenault (having left in 1984) rejoined in 1993.
