Gadelle Music Shows
(French Music/Bilingual dialogue)
The Village musical acadien will again host music shows this summer by the fantastic group Gadelle, a traditional but still relevant Acadian band from the Evangeline area that will soon release its second album. Its fiddler Louise Arsenault and organist-singer Hélène Bergeron are former members of the internationally acclaimed groups Barachois and Les Girls. Its singer-guitarist-accordionist Caroline Bernard and its multi-instrumentalist Rémi Arsenault have also performed on stages around the world with various groups.
All musicians of vast experience, the members of Gadelle dance and play with joy, conviction and ferocity while putting on one heck of a show! The sound is Acadian, the songs are in French, the banter is bilingual... the spirit of Acadia is alive and well! Their show is well rehearsed and ready to energize the crowd.
Gadelle offers two different shows per day, one at 1:30 p.m. and one at 3 p.m., Tuesday through Friday, from July 4 to August 31, in La Grange à Ti-Manuel.
