Le Vent du Nord brings everything you want from authentic Quebecois music. Gorgeous acapella songs? Check. Absolutely cracking dance tunes? Yep. Exuberant virtuosity? Mais oui. This acclaimed band is a leading force in Quebec’s progressive francophone folk movement, and its impressive repertoire draws from traditional sources and original compositions. Its hard-driving, soulful sound features button accordion, guitar, and fiddle, but the hurdy-gurdy gives the group its “earthy, rough-hewn flavor” (Boston Herald). The group’s intense, joyful live performances are unforgettable. Every Le Vent du Nord set flies by. Make sure you catch one.
