Since 1993, Chanterelle has brought audiences into the heart of New England's warm, lively French culture. Distinctively beautiful voices, virtuoso French fiddling and trademark trio harmonies are hallmarks of Chanterelle performances, taking the listener on an unforgettable journey from Québec to Acadia and beyond. Invoking their culture in music, story and song, singer Josée Vachon, fiddler Donna Hebert, Alan Bradbury on accordion and bass, and new member, accordionist/pianist Jeremiah McLane, of Nightingale fame, make the audience part of the soirée.

Laughter and music will ring together as hands and feet keep time with the music! Born in Quebec and raised in Maine, BRT favorite Josée Vachon loves to share her Franco-American culture through traditional folksongs from Quebec and Acadie featuring her warm voice, guitar, and unrelenting foot percussion. Josée's 12-year stint as host of French-language cable TV show Bonjour made her name a household word to Francos in the northeast. Her mix of traditional ballads, chansons à répondre and humorous originals, plus her warm, engaging stage presence make an immediate connnection with any audience. Josée has moved away from New England so we hope you will come out and catch one of her increasingly rare local performances! *This show will sell out so make
sure you plan ahead!
