Information/Write-up

"The Acadian musical group 1755 came on the scene in Moncton in the 1970s, at a time when Acadie was in full cultural and social effervescence. The group was formed in 1975, but not until 1977 did they take the name 1755. In some ways, 1755 somewhat marked Acadie's passage into modernity and generated a new consciousness of Acadian pride and identity. The group's reference to the date 1755 is in some ways thumbing its nose at history. Even though the group broke up in 1984, they still sometimes reunite on stage, as in 1994 during the first National Acadian Congress. Still today, the group 1755 is an undeniable reference point in regards to Acadian music."
