Named from an old-fashioned Acadian word with connotations of a feisty female, Gadelle is an all-female quartet which performs traditional French-Acadian music. They will be making their Charlottetown Festival debut in the Confederation Centre’s new performance space, Studio 2.

Comprised of Hélène Bergeron and Louise Arsenault, former members the group Barachois, with Caroline Bernard and Samantha Gallant of the folk group Les Girls, Gadelle promises to entertain with a mix of singing, dancing and music.

“If they like this style of music, I’m sure they will have a really great time,” said Louise Arsenault. “At least that’s what people tell us, that it’s so lively people want to get up and dance.”

“We’re very excited to have Gadelle as part of our French programming,” said Anne Allan, Artistic Director of The Charlottetown Festival. “Along with En Acadie and Vishten, we have a great line-up of bilingual performances during this year’s Charlottetown Festival.”
