New England Celtic Arts in conjunction with the 2014 World Acadian Congress will present Canadian songstress Lina Boudreau at the Unity College Centre for the Performing Arts in Unity, Maine on Tuesday, July 31st at 7:30. Tickets are $15.00 at the door. For reservations, call (207) 948-7469. The UCCPA is located at 42 Depot Street in Unity.
Lina Boudreau is a native of Memramcook, a quaint little French village in New Brunswick, considered the cradle of New Acadia. As a singer-songwriter, Boudreau is distinguished not only by the words she sings but by the tone of her beautiful voice, making her one of the most popular singers of Acadian, Quebecois, and First Nations songs.
Over the years, Boudreau has received much recognition, but one of the most memorable moments of her singing career was without a doubt when she was officially invited to sing for Céline Dion and René Angélil at their son René-Charles’s highly publicized baptism.
Boudreau has four albums to her name and is thrilled to soon be releasing a fifth. She has had the privilege of participating in several major international events such as the G7 and various summits of la Francophonie, which allowed her to perform in Singapore, Saudi Arabia and Guinea. She also performed in Morocco, Senegal, Côte d’Ivoire, Mali and Tanzania, at the invitation of the Ambassador of Canada.
Built from a one hundred year-old barn with attached farmhouse, the Unity College Centre for the Performing Arts, is a vibrant cultural and arts centre that offers an eclectic mix of music, films, art, lectures, and other various events. For more information visit www.unity.edu/uccpa
