"the music was joyous and real; earthy and accessible - just the kind of melodic and rhythmic energy we wanted - it celebrated kate & john's wedding effervescently, as bubbly in spirit as the champagne toasts. a wedding in maine is an awesome visual treat; thanks again for giving us the perfect musical counterpart!"

"They have frequently played here in the DC area because of their justified popularity. The raw energy and clean playing of Pam Weeks on fiddle and the popping rhythmic playing of Jim Joseph on Acadian accordion, gives dancers goosebumps and is inspired and joyful. Their style draws heavily on traditional Quebeqois music, but is not limited to the genre. Any step dancer could never keep their feet still. ( I sure can't!) Bill Olson, who doubles as both caller and guitarist, is a pleasure to learn from and dance to. His folksy New England whimsy is both charming and disarming. He makes the dances accessable and the dancers comfortable, while still maintaining a distinctive New England posture. His dances are famous - one commonly known is Eleanor's Reel and it often finishes many dance weekends, engendering the true community feeling of this aesthetic which we call contra dancing."

"People really enjoyed T-Acadie and the dancing. My brother in law who NEVER dances said to me on Sunday that he could do that all night. His wife couldn't believe it!.....we thoroughly enjoyed and my German Shepard is still looking for Pam's dog so he had a good time too."
