Canadian Singer Promotes Breast Exam, the Musical 

State of the Arts

Published September 26, 2007 at 9:17 p.m.

There's nothing remarkable about artists donating their talents to good causes, but Canadian singer-songwriter Lucie Blue Tremblay is taking it a step further. Actually, 63,000 miles and counting. On a pink chopper. Tremblay, who lives in Laval, Québec, has played across Canada and the U.S. for nearly 20 years, but for the past couple she's been on a mission: to promote the early detection of breast cancer.

One stop on the tour is a benefit concert this Saturday in Burlington. Proceeds will help fund a DVD Tremblay and others plan to release in 2008, which will feature a breast self-exam demonstration set to a song. (Now, that will give a new dimension to singing in the shower!) The film will also include information about the disease and interviews with breast-cancer survivors. And by the way, one of the project's slogans is: "It's not just for girls." Notes Tremblay's website, "In our travels, we found that 96 percent of men didn't know they can get breast cancer, too."

That's why guys and gals alike should get themselves to the show - Tremblay's sweet and sassy music is worth the effort, anyway. And while you're there, find out how you could inherit that motorcycle, which is emblazoned with the pink-ribbon symbol of breast-cancer survivors; Tremblay says it will be auctioned off at the end of the tour next year.


Lucie Blue Tremblay in concert, Saturday, September 29, at the Quaker Meeting House, 173 N. Prospect St., Burlington, 7:30 p.m. $25. For more info, call Maggie Randolph at 343-5562 or visit this website.
