New England Celtic Arts in conjunction with the 2014 World Acadian Congress will present the Lina Boudreau Trio at the Unity College Center for the Performing Arts in Unity, Maine on Thursday, December 13. Boudreau will perform her highly successful “Noel Lounge”, an Acadian influenced Christmas concert performed in both English and French. Show starts at 7:30 PM. Tickets are $15.
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. 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.
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.
