Les Forlaqueries- When l’Acadie gets inspired by Broadway
Times change, you know! I went to see Les Forlaqueries by invitation of my adolescent daughter! I was so surprised that I couldn’t say no. Well, am I ever happy that my girl thought of inviting her mother. And I’m even happier to have said yes. By Joe, what a concert that was!
‘Cause now I’ve really seen it all…or rather heard it all. We walked right into an Acadian gospel, as real as me standing here! And that’s just one of the evening’s surprises. At some point, I swear my head was spinning. Even good things can make your head spin, you know. I went from laughing to grabbing my sides to bawling my eyes out.
Now it’s the boys’ turn
We had a wonderful evening last Friday! Those girls were on fire. But you know how it is; the boys weren't going to stay behind for long. So take out your dancing shoes and come on back to l'Ile-aux-Puces on Friday July 25th for Boys' Night (Soirée des gars).
I'd love to say that they'll have some bread to chew on before coming close to surpassing the girls, but when you look at the list of artists.... Well! Check it out for yourself: George Belliveau, Jean-Marc Cormier, Jacques Comeau and Daniel Léger. The bar's been raised gentlemen; you may as well make everyone that'll be there swing the night away.
