USM's Franco-American Collection is hosting acclaimed musician Robert  
Sylvain, of the Acadian group Boreal Tordu, for a musical lecture on Thursday, August 15 at 2:00 pm in room 285 at USM’s Lewiston-Auburn College.

Sylvain will be speaking about the research project he conducted to explore the songs left to him by his grandmother, Elisa Thibodeau.  For decades after Thibodeau’s death, the notebook remained forgotten, until Sylvain and a cousin, fiddler Steve Muise, started to look for melodies to accompany the lyrics.

The August 15th program will explore some of these recovered songs from his  mémère’s notebook and the process Sylvain went through to resurrect them.  

In the course of the project, he worked at the Acadian Archives at the University of Maine at Fort Kent and interviewed family members.  Many of the songs Sylvain researched were on the verge of extinction.

The program is free and open to everyone but donations are welcomed. No reservations are needed.  Light refreshments will be served.  For more information call James Myall at 207-753-6545, email franco@usm.maine.edu or visit the Collection’s website www.usm.maine.edu/franco
