Acadian meal and soirée set for July 13
As part of Acadian Days Festival at the Farmers’ Bank of Rustico and Doucet House museums, an evening of food presented by Robert Pendergast with music by Allison Blacquiere and his sons is planned for July 13.
The museums are located at 2188 Church Rd., Route 243, off Route 6, in Rustico and are wheelchair-accessible and airconditioned.
From 5:30 to 7:15 p.m. (rain or shine), Pendergast will prepare a traditional Acadian meal at the Doucet house’s outdoor clay bake oven. He will also entertain with stories and music while he bakes. Pre-registration is requested.
The soirée will begin at 7:30 p.m. Blacquiere began playing music in his teens on his sister’s guitar. In 1997, he and three friends formed the band After Dark and played all over P.E.I. Since then, Blacquiere has played with different bands and is now part of the band Gypsy Soul.
His two sons have also caught the music bug and enjoy different styles of music. Brandon loves to sing. He amazes his parents with the effort he puts into figuring out lyrical phrases and the smile he has when singing a song he loves. Spencer loves to play many classic songs on his guitar.
He was awarded the Josh Doucette memorial award this year at Gulf Shore Consolidated School for his dedication to the school band program.
