    Boreal Tordu: Acadian Culture Concert & Food

     Join us for traditional Acadian food followed by a concert in the spirit of the old custom of Acadian kitchen parties. We'll be cooking up a bit of Acadian stew known as Fricot- the precursor to Cajun Gumbo, and other delicacies. Fun for all ages including a chance to try some Acadian percussion instruments and maybe learn some French to sing along.

    In 1604 the Acadians landed in Maine from France. 400 years later, Boreal Tordu takes Maine-Acadian music from traditional ballads and footstomping fiddle tunes to a new realm for a new generation, while preserving the unique character of Acadian culture.
    Boreal Tordu is a quartet of Maine musicians playing material commonly called French-Canadian music. This music is really the music of Franco-American culture, the tunes of New England mill towns and coastal communities on both sides of the border — "Acadian folk, Cajun swing, maritime ballads, crooked fiddle tunes and foot-stomping French dance music."
    "...a fun brand of rootsy acoustic music that's accessible... and features some top-notch musicality and singing." Sam Pfeifle - The Portland Phoenix
    Watch the Amazing Things web site as we develop an Acadian Culture day experience that will delight and educate.
