Le Vent du Nord Concert

Irish/Celtic, Folk

The award winning and highly acclaimed band Le Vent du Nord is a leading force in Quebec’s progressive francophone folk movement and an iconic name in their traditional music revival. The group’s vast repertoire draws from both traditional sources and original compositions, while enhancing it’s hard-driving soulful music rooted in the Celtic diaspora with a broad range of global influences. Since its inception in August 2002, Le Vent du Nord has enjoyed meteoric success, performing well over 1,800 concerts throughout five continents and racking up several prestigious awards, including a Grand Prix du Disque Charles Cros, two Junos (Canadian Grammys), a Felix at ADISQ, and a CFMA & “Artist of the Year” at the North American Folk Alliance Annual Gala. The group exhibits great finesse and flexibility, appearing regularly on Canadian, American, French, and UK television and radio, and participating in a wide variety of musical projects. Not content with standard approaches to tradition, Le Vent du Nord has created a symphonic concert that, according to Voir Meontreal, “puts all traditional folk naysayers to shame.”
