Now

JA Arms open WhistlerTHEN

What’s that expression “that was then, this is now”?  Well, this photo was taken back then on Whistler Mountain in British  Columbia back in October 2014.

I was the VIA Rail Artist on Board and sang 3 times a day for 3 days on a moving train each way from Toronto to Vancouver & back.

I wrote songs, took photos and could scarcely take in all the magnificent scenery though the 5 provinces we rode through:  Ontario, Manitoba Saskatchewan, Manitoba and British Columbia.  And all during the peak of the fabulous fall season!  A train ride of a lifetime.  (Read my October 2014 blogs about my travels – all 21 of them!)

In 2016 I premiered my “This Is My Canada Presents” series at Eastminster United Church and featured Canadian songwriters who had to play/sing only Canadian songs written by them or other Canadian songwriters. (http://jeanettearsenault.ca/this-is-my-canada/this-is-my-canada-presents/).


 

NOW

And now?

Well I am glad you asked!

This Is My Canada/Mon cher Canada is on track to make a national splash — I am in the planning stages with a Juno Award Winning singer to sing the lead along with award winning musicians to create a new version.  And a brand new video will be shot by an award winning videographer who has created videos for Willy Nelson & Lyle Lovett, to name a few.

I am launching my Canada 150 show for schools, “Proud to be Canadienne, eh!” in …… MAPLE, Ontario!  How Canadian, eh!

I am also creating another Acadian-Canadian show to be premiered Fall 2017 in Belleville ON.  It will include an Acadian feast of fiddling, stepdancing, spoonplaying, harmonica, accordian, singing & stories.

I finished recording 30 songs for a double children’s album and somewhere this year, I will find a window to finally release them.

So….what does 2017 look like for you?

Below is a video of me singing at The Empire Theatre in Belleville ON for the Bellevegas fundraiser for Quinte Arts Council in 2015.
