A refreshing northern wind — traditional French-Canadian music from Québec, played with a distinctive finesse and irrepressible energy. Whenever this quartet comes to Harrisburg, they blow us away all over again. We're delighted to host them for a return visit.
"This album [Tromper le Temps] is another achievement from a high-quality traditional quartet [...] a cohesive playing style, a powerful groove, an almost rock attitude, the clarity of the voices, the accuracy of the instruments, the strength of the proposals, the realization of form. Surely among the elite of North American traditional Francophone bands." — Alain Brunet, La Presse
"Do all your songs have such fascinating stories?" — Catherine Perrin, Radio Canada - Première Chaîne
