“Karl Tremblay, the Voice of Cowboys Fringants, Passes Away”
The group confirmed on social media the death of their singer at the age of 47. A familiar voice of Quebecers fades away. Cowboys Fringants singer Karl Tremblay died Wednesday at the age of 47. He announced in the summer of 2022 that he was battling prostate cancer, which forced the group to cancel several of their commitments in recent months. It was the same day, in a publication on social networks, that the Quebec music group made the official announcement. The public was able to say goodbye to the singer during the Cowboys Fringants concert presented as part of the last Quebec Summer Festival. A spectacle which proved particularly emotional, while Karl Tremblay appeared physically diminished. In a moment filled with emotion that will go down in history, the crowd sang the song On my shoulderwhich had visibly affected the singer.
