Musician Lucie Blue TremblayPut on your holiday bling, enjoy your favorite (favourite) beverage, and celebrate Canada Day (July 1) and US Independence Day (July 4) with our special guest Lucie Blue Tremblay!

Lucie is one of Canada’s great voices and songwriters, bringing her bilingual Canadian heritage to life in songs that celebrate love, strength, truth, peace and honor. French and English lyrics, a gorgeous voice, and her trademark whistle have melted the hearts of listeners around the globe since she first arrived on the stage in the early 80’s.

Now a dual Canadian and American citizen, Lucie has a special understanding of both countries. So please join us as we host a holiday celebration while staying safe and avoiding crowds!
