The Acadian dream

Rain Over St. Ambrose, Kuato and Quiet Parade want you to enjoy their tunes, and feast on their baked goods.

After almost two years as a label The Acadian Embassy wants to thank you for being a friend. Coming down from a strong showing in The Coast's Best of Music readers' poll the diverse three-band collective is showing their gratitude to their supporters in the form of music before getting back to business. And the next little while is all about new music: Rain Over St. Ambrose heads into the studio on Sunday, Quiet Parade will put a Factor grant to good use and Kuato is digging into writing its first full-length, inspired by the Acadian expulsion. "It's something that always comes out in the stuff we do, regardless," says Kuato's Josh Pothier, of bringing his Acadian roots into the music. Speaking of which, Pothier promises he and his Embassy comrade Trevor Murphy might just bake up a rappie pie for Saturday's festivities. Now that's what we call Yarmouth hospitality.

Saturday April 7, 1313 Hollis Street, 8:30pm, pay what you can
