LEWISBURG, Pa. — Lucie Blue Tremblay will be in concert on Tuesday, Sept. 16, at 7:30 p.m. in Bucknell Hall at Bucknell University.
Called "one of Canada's best-kept secrets," the singer/songwriter has performed internationally, appearing at folk venues and women's music festivals in the United States, Spain, Australia and New Zealand. She has shared the stage with such musicians as Sarah McLachlan, Randy Newman, James Taylor, Pete Seeger and Meg Christian.
She received the Jane Schliessman Music Award for Outstanding Contributions to Women's Music in 2002.
Her first self-titled album was on the Boston Globe's Top Ten list in 1986. In subsequent albums she has continued to turn personal experience into compelling song, with studio recordings being interspersed with concert cuts, and English lyrics alternating with songs in French. Her most recent album, "It's Got To Be Love," was released late in 2004.
Breast cancer awareness
Tremblay founded The Breast Exam Project in 2005 a result of her sister's diagnosis with the disease, and has been touring in support of breast cancer awareness for the past two years.
In conjunction with Lavender Visions Productions, she has produced "Changes," an educational musical DVD for breast cancer awareness and early detection that has been one of the goals of The Breast Exam Project.
"Changes" has been called a unique and effective tool that has the capacity to reach people of all walks of life with music as her vehicle. "Changes" will be shown for only the second time since its release at the beginning of the concert at Bucknell on Sept. 16.
