Boreal Tordu celebrates Acadian Culture w/ a concert & traditional Acadian food

Event Date: 
Saturday, October 20, 2012 - 7:00pm

Join us for traditional Acadian food followed by a concert in the spirit of the old custom of Acadian kitchen parties. We'll be cooking up a bit of Acadian stew known as Fricot- the precursor to Cajun Gumbo, and other delicacies. Fun for all ages including a chance to try some Acadian percussion instruments and maybe learn some French to sing along.

Boreal Tordu takes Maine-Acadian music from traditional ballads and footstomping fiddle tunes to a new realm for a new generation, while preserving the unique character of Acadian culture. Boreal Tordu is a quartet of Maine musicians playing material commonly called French-Canadian music. This music is really the music of Franco-American culture, the tunes of New England mill towns and coastal communities on both sides of the border, Acadian folk, Cajun swing, maritime ballads, crooked fiddle tunes and foot-stomping French dance music.

"...a fun brand of rootsy acoustic music that's accessible... and features some top-notch musicality and singing." Sam Pfeifle - The Portland Phoenix
