This week’s guest is a French-Canadian Hall of Fame Musician, host of Bonjour a French Language talk show that aired over 500 episodes, she’s performed all over the world and she was kind enough to let us use her fantastic song “French in America” to start and end our show each week. Josée Vachon sits down with Jesse to talk about all that and she’ll discuss how she was introduced to music and talk about some of her favorite songs.Josée Vachon Website - http://www.joseevachon.com/Josée Vachon CD Baby Page - https://store.cdbaby.com/Artist/JoseeVachonFoot Tapping Lesson - https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=whQbiofXc8s

Next week’s guest has been involved with every episode of the French-Canadian Legacy and we’re very excited we got to sit down with her. Josée Vachon is a French-Canadian Hall of Fame musician who allows us to use her song ‘French in America’ every week. Jesse and Josée discuss her childhood in Maine, when she discovered her love of music and they’ll discuss the origin of a few of her songs. Make sure you keep listening after the bonus question because you’ll hear the full version of French in America.

This week’s episode is a little different but we hope you’ll come along for the ride. Two weeks ago we attended the fourth annual NH PoutineFest in Merrimack, NH. We interviewed a lot of people, restaurants and venders that were there and put it all together in our first wrap up episode. Tim Beaulieu, Event Organizer of NH PoutineFest, was nice enough to chat with us about the successful event. We were also lucky enough to sit down with Doris Proulx who was named Franco-American of the Year at the event. We want to thank everyone that took the time to talk to us and everyone that visited our table at the event. It’s great to hear that people are enjoying the show. Just a note about the audio in this episode, it was my first time using portable audio equipment, so the levels aren’t as high as the interview with Tim. I hope this doesn’t distract anyone from listening to the interviews because there are a lot of great stories being shared. I’m still learning and I thank everyone for bearing with us. I also want to thank my friend Adam Bargmeyer who was super kind and mailed us portable audio equipment that made all these great interviews possible. Without his generosity this episode wouldn’t have been possible.

Every year Saint-Jean-Baptiste Day is celebrated June 24th so we wanted to have an episode that focused on the history of the event. We were lucky enough to have James Myall back to teach us not just the history of Saint-Jean-Baptiste Day in Canada but also in New England. We talk about the origin, how it was celebrated and why we don’t seem to celebrate it as much as we used to.Follow James on Twitter - https://twitter.com/jamesxmyallRare Pictures of Saint-John-Baptist day - http://myall.bangordailynews.com/2017/06/24/maine/no-fairer-spectacle-rare-pictures-of-a-maine-st-johns-day-1897/A Great and Worthy Celebration - http://myall.bangordailynews.com/2016/06/23/maine/a-great-and-worthy-celebration-st-johns-day/Query the Past Saint-John-Baptist - http://querythepast.com/saint-jean-baptiste-new-england/
