“Catch them while you can. UK festival bookers would do well to snap them up” Propaganda Magazine
Combining a great stage presence with an energetic, dynamic flair, Le Vent du Nord are one of the leading names in Québécois folk music performing original songs inspired from their tradition- a truly fabulous sound!
Following on their knockout success in 2016 the Quebec-based quartet are returning for some final shows in the UK for 2017. The group never fail to delight crowds with their glorious mix of fiddle and foot-tapping, guitar, accordion, piano, bass, hurdy-gurdy and wonderful four part harmonies. The band delivers catchy songs and tunes, some taken from the Québec traditional folk repertoire while others are original compositions. The group has a rich and varied instrumentation and well-polished musical arrangements simply enhance their uplifting repertoire.
The band consist of singers / multi-instrumentalists Nicolas Boulerice, Simon Beaudry, Olivier Demers, and Réjean Brunet and are now one of the best-loved Québec folk outfits throughout the world. They have performed all across Canada and the USA, and in over 15 European countries. Considered a driving force in progressive folk, Le Vent du Nord captures the energy and mirth of a Saturday night kitchen party, infusing old Québec with a breath of fresh, cosmopolitan air.
The group have racked up many several prestigious awards, including a Grand Prix du Disque Charles Cros, two Junos (Canada’s Grammys) and ‘Artist of the Year’ at the North American Folk Alliance Annual Gala.
On stage Le Vent du Nord know how to deliver music that will move any crowd – to their feet and in their hearts!
“thanks so much for encouraging us to go and see Le Vent du Nord and De Temps Antan – absolutely stunning (best gig of the weekend)” Forest Folk
ALSO available in 2018 with fellow Québec band De Temps Antan to form the stunning big band SOLO. The band wowed audiences at Celtic Connections festival, Glasgow, in January this year and in Canada they were the big hit at Edmonton and Vancouver Festivals.
” two of Québec’s greatest traditional bands together on the same stage, this is a dream booking for a festival director”
” Solo got our festival off to a rousing start and brought the same brilliance to our session stages and after show parties and they are great to deal with. Bring this class act to your festival” Terry Wickham (Festival Producer – Edmonton Festival)
