Le Vent du Nord capture all the energy and mirth of a Saturday night kitchen party!
Combining a great stage presence with an energetic, dynamic flair, Le Vent du Nord are one of the leading names in Québecois folk music performing original songs inspired from their tradition – a truly fabulous sound!
Following on from their knockout success at festivals over the summer of 2014, the Québec-based quartet continue to delight crowds with their mix of fiddle, guitar, accordion and hurdy-gurdy. They perform original songs many of which are taken from their traditional Canadian repertoire and are sung in native French.
The band is now one of the most-loved Québec folk outfits in the world. The current line-up consists of singers / multi-instrumentalists Nicolas Boulerice, Simon Beaudry, Olivier Demers, and Réjean Brunet.
On stage Le Vend du Nord know how to deliver music that will move any crowd – to their feet and in their hearts!
