Le Vent Du Nord

A refreshing northern wind — traditional French-Canadian music from Québec, played with a distinctive finesse and irrepressible energy.

"The quartet Le Vent du Nord is a leading force in [Québec's] progressive folk movement, and they leaven their hard-driving soulful music (a close cousin to Celtic music) with New Orleans polyphony and R&B. Featuring button accordion, guitar and fiddle, the band's sound is defined by the hurdy-gurdy, which adds an earthy, rough-hewn flavor to even the most buoyant dance tunes." —Boston Herald

Their repertoire includes both traditional French-Canadian tunes and original compositions, with a crackling joie de vivre that blows us away every time they come to Harrisburg. We're delighted to host them for a return visit.
