Jeanette Arsenault — Planning for Canada 150 in 2017!!
Singing and writing is my passion – from Acadian to Canadian, quirky to funny, inspirational to motivational, causes to social issues – I sing what I have to say. Just me and my piano or with a little help from my musical friends…….making merry music motivates me!
I’m An Acadian-Canadian, Eh!
I love my Acadian heritage and I want to share a piece of our Canadian history with English & Bilingual audiences who do not know much about our story. With a little bit of storytelling, English & French songs along with traditional spoon playing, harmonica, stepdancing, I am my own variety show!

Proud to be An Acadienne-Canadienne, Eh!
Interactive bilingual show for the schools – Kindergarten to Grade 8 – highlighting my Acadian heritage and their role as early pioneers of Canada.
