Aca­dian meal and soirée set for July 13

The Guardian (Charlottetown) - - COMMUNITY/ENTERTAINMENT -

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.
