Le Vent du Nord

Saturday, April 23, 8pm

Free Conversation with the Artists at 3pm

The award winning and highly acclaimed band is a leading force in Quebec’s progressive francophone folk movement. Their vast repertoire draws from both traditional sources and original compositions, while enhancing their hard-driving soulful music (rooted in the Celtic diaspora) with a broad range of global influences. Featuring button accordion, guitar and fiddle, the band’s sound is defined by the hurdy-gurdy, which adds an earthy, rough-hewn flavor to even the most buoyant dance tunes. They have enjoyed meteoric success, performing 1,800 concerts over 5 continents and racking up several prestigious awards, including a Grand Prix du Disque Charles Cros, two Junos (Canada’s Grammys), a Félix at ADISQ, a Canadian Folk Music Award, and “Artist of the Year” at the North American Folk Alliance Annual Gala.
