Wildly popular at last season’s Festival, this award-winning and highly acclaimed group is a leading force in Quebec’s progressive francophone folk movement. The group’s vast repertoire draws from both traditional sources and original compositions, while enhancing its hard-driving soulful music (rooted in the Celtic diaspora) with a broad range of global influences. On stage these friends create intense, joyful and dynamic performances that expand the bounds of tradition in striking global directions. This is the modern sound of tradition, a music of the here and now.
Le Vent du Nord must melt the snow in their native Quebec. Led by twin fiddles and hurdy-gurdy, driven by incessantly rattling foot percussion, the quintet’s unbridled energy rarely let up in this Light on the Shore concert.”
