ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
Josée has 12 solo recordings to her credit, and continues to perform and record the music that best represents her love of Franco-American culture. This 2006 recording was inspired as a prayer of thanks for surviving breast cancer surgery, chemo and radiation in 2006. The hymns and songs of faith were carefully chosen to reflect her gentle optimism and love of life. Opening song "Dis seulement une parole" translates to Only Say the Word, I Shall Be Healed. Songs continue in this direction to I Believe in You (Je crois en Toi) to the final Sing Victory (Chantons Victoire!).

Born in Québec and raised in Maine, Josée Vachon has been sharing her Franco-American upbringing for over 25 years through traditional and contemporary songs from Québec and Acadia and through her own compositions.

Though she often entertained at family gatherings, she began singing publicly with the support of the Franco-American Center at the University of Maine, where she discovered others who shared her rich heritage. After receiving her BA in Romance Languages in 1984, she continued to perform, quickly gaining recognition as a new Franco-American voice through early performances at state festivals in Lewiston and Madawaska, ME and at schools and parish soirées.

In 1999 she received the National Culture through the Arts Award from NYSAFLT (New York State Association of Foreign Language Teachers) and was recently inducted in the French-Canadian Hall of Fame Class of 2007 for the American-French Genealogical Society.

Served as a Franco-American ambassadrice, presenting at:

* Constitution Hall, Washington D.C.
* Women's Singing Traditions of New England Tour, 1994
* Congrès Mondial du Conseil International d'Etudes Francophones, Martinique
* l'Institut Français, Berlin Germany
* New Brunswick Canada tour
* Festival été indien, St-Etienne France
* Presentations & conferences on la francophonie, Quebec Canada

International television appearances include:

* Bonjour!, from March 1987 to April 1998, hosted over 500 tapings of the most widely seen French-language television show in the US, airing on cable and public television stations in Louisiana, the Northeastern US and Canada
* Champs Elysées, Antenne 2, Paris France, as part of the Tour du monde de la francophonie with Radio-France
* Le grand échiquier, Antenne 2, Paris France
* Les démons du midi, Société Radio-Canada, Montréal
* Coup d'oeil, CBC, Moncton NB

Her music was included in:

* La Bolduc, a documentary for Canada's History Channel
* MicroSoft's AutoMap Trip Planner software
* Smithsonian Folkways Recording Mademoiselle voulez-vous danser: Franco-American music from the New England Borderlands -- The song ‘Entre moi’, originally performed with Chanterelle.

In July 1993, she co-founded the folk group Chanterelle with award-winning fiddler Donna Hébert (http://www.dhebert.com/) and singer/guitarist Liza Constable (http://www.lizaconstable.com/), often joined by bass and cajun accordion player Alan Bradbury. The group resleased the CDs French in America (1994) and Soirée Chez Nous (1996).
