FARMINGTON – On Saturday, May 15, from 7 to 9 p.m., people can enjoy the sounds of local artists Boreal Tordu, Jean Pincince and Jade at Nordica Auditorium, at University of Maine at Farmington.

Boreal Tordu is a local band with its roots in traditional French-Canadian music, mixing Acadian folk, Cajun swing, maritime ballads and crooked fiddle tunes to form foot-stomping French music.

The musicians are Steve Muise, Robert Sylvain Jr., Tom Jacques and Ron Bonnevie. They opened the first Terre pis Ciel festival last year.

They will be joined by Adele St. Pierre for some original music.

Pincince plays the bodrhan and will invite the crowd to join him in traditional French-Canadian call-and-answer songs. He also has a few jokes up his sleeves.

St. Pierre and Jason Mancine will be reuniting on stage as Jade for the first time in several years, performing original folk songs.

A $5 suggested donation will be accepted at the door and there will be door prizes as well as a 50-50 drawing. All proceeds will benefit the Terre pis Ciel Franco-American Festival Fund.
