Les Vendordis starts with a bang
We're almost there. Just a few more days and we'll be able to gather on l'Île-aux-Puces for the premiere of Les Vendordis du Pays series! We've been waiting for them since February. At last, nice weather, music and good ol'chums to have a nice evening.
First show: The Legends. I'm thinking that it's George Belliveau who decided what was going to go down. The Legends in question are George Jones, George Strait and Garth Brooks. It's not exactly a secret that the people of Kent are big fans of country music. And it don't mean that if you ain't from Kent county or that you didn't grow up with country music blaring in your ears all day long that you won't be havin' access! Starting with these big country names was probably the best way to start off big.
When the Pays becomes a Capital
I just got back from the Pays de la Sagouine's 2014 Season Launch press conference. Nice room filled with nice people! You know that it's serious business when artists, business people and them there who do politics, gather round the same place on a Tuesday morning.
But it's not this eclectic melting pot that impressed me the most. Nope. It's what was said! What a nice season we're going to have this year. There's so much new stuff that we won't know where to put it all: the Arvunes store, la Pointe-aux-Coques with its locally dressed menu, the pretty Josephine who will come a digging into everyone's stories, weekends for kids; I swear there were so many new things that I'm forgetting some.
Marie-tête-de-violon, portée par la musique, navigue parmi les étoiles avec son violon Joseph en quête de nouveaux « party de cuisine ». Un beau matin, à l'aube, Joseph la tire avec force en direction du Pays de la Sagouine, où elle passe son temps à découvrir l'Île-aux-Puces, la joie de vivre de ses habitants et la musique de leurs rires francs.
Ses aventures paraissent tous les mercredis dans le site Web du Pays de la Sagouine.
