SAWAGI TAIKO DRUMMERS
Saturday evening September 1, 2018

Founded in 1990, Sawagi Taiko is the first all-women taiko group in Canada. We are a multi-generational group of women of East Asian and Indigenous heritage, brought together by our shared passion for Japanese drumming. “Sawagi” means “to cause a commotion” in Japanese. With thunderous drum beats, stirring vocals, and martial-arts inspired choreography, we share the empowerment and exhilaration we feel through taiko with our diverse audiences. We harness the power of the drum to support feminist and social justice ideals. Our spirit, creativity and respect for one another can be felt both on and off the stage.

JUST ANNOUNCED!  LUCIE BLUE TREMBLAY
Sunday Evening September 2, 2018
Singing from her new album "Counting My Blessings"

Lucie Blue Tremblay has been writing, recording and performing since 1982. She was the recipient of the Festival de la Chanson de Granby’s Singer Songwriter Award, The Press Award and the Public Award in 1984.  In the years that followed Lucie Blue joined Olivia Records in Oakland California.  She toured extensively  in the US and Canada as well as appearing in concert in France, Spain, Australia and New Zealand.

2012-2016 Lucie Blue took personal time off the road with a few concerts here and there.  She became a US resident during this time and she and her partner took care of her mom.  She received her U.S. license as a Certified Patient Care Technician  as well as her CDL Class A license.  (You just never know when you need to drive a crowd somewhere or haul a load of goods across the country!) As time passed Lucie the Caregiver was graced with a wonderful opportunity to work for an all-inclusive care program for the elderly. 

And now, after a multitude of life experiences she returns to the studio and to the stage with more passion than ever before.

Her new CD is called “Counting My Blessings”.  The CD is powerful, funny, festive, positive and happy.  She is on the road, performing in concert halls, churches, festivals and house concerts (and BOLDFest!) as we all Count our Blessings together.
