  • Bio: Backgrounder | Jeanette Arsenault - Singer & Songwriter, Ontario, Canada
    Every family gathering was music filled with almost everyone playing something fiddle guitar mandolin bass piano spoons You either played an instrument sang or step danced and sometimes both or all at once I have vivid memories of gathering in my maternal grandparents living room and there would a huge circle of musicians playing jigs reels They always invited the children to step dance in the middle of the circle or play along with spoons or some sort of percussion instrument It was heaven on earth to me I couldn t wait to get in the middle and dance my little heart out My feet would be flying but not to any recognizable stepdance move that was not one of my strong points But I didn t care the music lifted me up off the floor and my soul soared to the rhythm of those Acadian tunes I picked up the spoons and played them till I had dents in my fingers Fast forward to my current new show I m An Acadian Canadian Eh where I share my rich Acadian heritage with an English speaking audience who don t know much about this little known Canadian history I tell stories about my family sing songs I have written play harmonica the spoons and even do a little step dancing But my path was not a straight one from my musical childhood to my current life as a singer songwriter recording performing artist I left high school and worked in Ottawa both in the civil service and on Parliament Hill from 1976 1989 My jobs included working for a Cabinet Minister Members of Parliament and Senators I quit my day job in 1989 to become a full time musician and worked throughout Eastern Ontario singing cover songs in bars restaurants lounges conferences etc Then in 1993 I decided to record my first album of original material and had dreams aspirations of touring across Canada around the world Then I promptly got pregnant I released my debut album in September 1994 gave birth to my daughter in December 1994 I was at a crossroad do I tour the new album bring her along with me or leave her at home with babysitters to raise her my husband worked out of town at the time I decided to become a full time Mom and play my music in between raising my daughter Along the way I sang my original song This Is My Canada Mon cher Canada for our Olympic athletes in Salt Lake City 2002 Athens Greece 2004 my anthem Women of the World in Helsinki Finland to open the Business Professional Women International World Congress 2011 to name but a few interesting gigs over the years 8 independently released albums later my daughter is currently in 2 nd year University and now I am almost finished my 9 th album children s songs and travelling extensively doing shows My musical genre is folk pop Acadian and song themes include women
