Le Vent du Nord

Time to kick up the heels and gladden the heart! A driving force on the world’s folk music scene, Le Vent du Nord capture the revelry of a Saturday night kitchen party with their boundless enthusiasm and playful showmanship. Add to the mix impeccable musicianship, stunning vocal arrangements and breakneck tunes – with dancing between verses to boot – and it’s no wonder this amazingly versatile band gets heads bobbing and feet tapping from the first few notes.

The quartet have blazed a trail across the globe with their gritty, modern twist on French-Canadian roots music, whether performing a repertoire of Québec traditional folk and original material or sharing a stage with the likes of The Chieftains, Breton musical pioneer Yann-Fañch Kemener or Scottish folk band Breabach. A punk-like sense of wild abandon to their music has earned them a host of prestigious awards along the way, including two Junos (Canada’s Grammys), a Canadian Folk Music Award, and Artist of the Year at the North American Folk Alliance Annual Gala. Be warned, audience participation is positively demanded – bring your dancing shoes!
