Le Vent du Nord
If you've seen them before, you already know. And if you've never seen them, words won't do them justice. Suffice it to say that Le Vent du Nord is one of the best bands touring today, no matter your musical taste. These four fantastically talented musicians play stomping traditional French-Canadian music with a cohesive playing style, a powerful groove, an almost rock attitude, clarity of voice, and accuracy of instruments. Every performance captures the energy and mirth of a Saturday night kitchen party, infusing old Québec with a breath of fresh, cosmopolitan air.
In support of their new album, Tétu, this multiple-award winning foursome effortlessly tackle instruments ranging from mandolin, diatonic accordion, acoustic guitars and bass, and mouthharp, to fiddle, a hurdy gurdy, even an Irish Bouzouki…while all handle vocal duties. When it all comes together, it's magic, and we are so happy and honored to be welcoming them back to The Nelson Odeon stage.
"Along the way there are plenty of tunes and songs from that deep well of Québécois memory, impeccably played and recorded, with unmistakable soul and spirit." - Richard Thornley, Penguin Eggs Magazine
