The 2008 Acadian Nights at La Maroquinerie in Paris, France


The 7th Acadian Nights (Les Nuits Acadiennes) are back in Paris, France. They will take place at La Maroquinerie from March 13th to 15th, 2008.
Acadia gathers the French speaking communities of the New-Brunswick, Nova Scotia, Prince Edward Island and Newfoundland & Labrador provinces of Canada. Strengthened by their dramatic history and the elements surrounding them, these French descendants transcend culture over the centuries and generations. The Acadians are proud, generous, festive and never look back.

The Acadian Nights are the opportunity for the French recording industry and the public to discover the talent of the Acadian artists like Danny Boudreau and Angèle Arsenault whose careers are already busy and newcomers Pascal Lejeune and La Virée. This 7th Acadian Night offers Paris a trip to French America.

In association with the Stratégie de Promotion des Artistes Acadiens sur la Scène Internationale (Promotion of Acadian artists) and the Société Nationale de l’Acadie (National Society of Acadia), La Maroquinerie welcomes the Acadian Nights for the 4th consecutive year. The concert hall of La Maroquinerie and its restaurant are a perfect setting to make this event a unique and warm moment between the Acadian artists and the public.

Besides 2008 is the 250th anniversary year of the deportation of the Acadians from Saint-Jean Island today called Prince Edward Island. 250 years later, the Acadian Nights are a tribute to the courage and determination of the first French colonists in America. This is a testimony of the survival of Acadian people and their dynamism.

Acadian artists will take you on a three-evening-adventure full of exuberance...
