Album Notes
This album was produced in Quebec to introduce this Franco-American singer to the Canadian market. These songs include her most requested songs in the beginning of her performing and recording career. The original song, "Entre moi", was written as a cultural and humorous look at her decision to identify as Franco-American, though born Canadian. The 2 national anthems are highlighted in the music and play on words with her name. Memories of childhood in Quebec, favorite foods, regional expressions are used. The song was also recorded with her group, Chanterelle, on the Smithsonian Folkways Recording "Mademoiselle, voulez-vous danser..."
"N'oublie pas" was written to welcome the Ministre de la francophonie, Alain Decaux, to Manchester, NH in 1989 and discover the Franco-American culture there. He was moved by the song and invited her to represent New England's Franco-Americans on the international television program from Paris, Le Grand Echiquier, that highlighted the French cultures from around the world. The introduction by Monsieur Decaux as well as the performance of the song is seen on YouTube by searching "Josee Vachon".
With a mix of upbeat and humorous popular sing-alongs as well as favorite traditional ballads of Acadians, this CD is an invitation to sit-back and enjoy Josee's warmth and pride in her French-Canadian/Franco-American cultures.
