Tavern Talk: “The Music History of French Canadians, Franco-Americans, Acadians, and Cajuns”
May 16, 2018 @ 6:30 pm - 7:30 pm
As part of our 2018 theme: Global Perspectives on the Revolution; Lucie Therrien follows the migration of French-Canadians and the evolution of their traditional music: its arrival in North America from France, the music’s crossing with Indian culture during the evangelization of Acadia and Quebec, its growth alongside English culture after British colonization, and its expansion from Quebec to New England, as well as from Acadia to Louisiana.
Lucie Therrien is a songwriter, author, poet, historian, recording artist, visual artist, linguist, film maker and certified teacher. She received a MA in Music History and a BA in Piano from the University of New Hampshire after her fine art studies in Montreal at l’Ecole des Beaux Arts. Therrien has performed on five continents. Among numerous awards she has received, the New Hampshire State Council on the Arts has honored her with four Traditional Master/Apprentice awards, as well as awards in songwriting, film, video, composing and arranging.
This tavern talk is a talk followed by a DVD presentation.
