The Music History of French-Canadians, Franco-Americans, Acadians, and Cajuns

November 13, 2016

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. 

Hosted by the Nashua Historical Society.
