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.”

Fred Morrison Concert

Irish/Celtic, Folk

Join us for a night of incredible piping with the world famous Fred Morrison! Fred Morrison returns to the Littlefield Celtic Center for another spectacular performance! One of the world’s most skilled and celebrated pipers, Morrison’s mastery of the great Highland bagpipes, reel pipes, Uilleann pipes, and low whistle is evident through his technical virtuoso and captivating stage presence. We recommend purchasing tickets early, as this event has historically sold out each year at the Littlefield Celtic Center! A living legend in the Celtic music world, Morrison’s music is firmly rooted in the tradition of the Hebridean islands of Scotland while also boldly exploring the technical and creative boundaries of Celtic music. He has developed a distinct and renowned signature sound in the piping community, and has won nearly all of the international prizes in the piping world. His exceptional talents and expressive style are immediately evident in his adventurous music. His performances feature mostly his own original compositions, and whether a haunting slow air or an incredibly difficult reel or jig played with breakneck speed and skilled precision, Fred’s mastery of his instruments is completely apparent.
