Marc French songs of immigration (10) RE: French songs of immigration 05 May 03


Sure Dale. The cajuns were evicted from Canada in 1757. Have you any songs of that period you can suggest. Kendall, perfect, I'd forgotten about that song, as a matter of fact I believe I have a recording of Chanterelle doing Un Canadien Errant. As a matter of fact Chanterelle might be precisely where to look for this material. As far as Evangeline, I agree it's a beautiful piece of writing, but I believe I'm looking for a immigrant's view of immigration, or even a natives view of invasion, other than someone's view of how she might of felt. I'm going to be doing a workshop on immigration song and I'm largly interested in first person accounts, I could be swayed though. Once again any imput is appreciated.
