Because we love the music of Quebec, we couldn't pass up the opportunity to bring this amazing band to The Odeon. If you love Le Vent du Nord, you'll love É.T.É. Three young musicians with varied musical backgrounds united their creative and artistic forces to form the group É.T.É. Its members, Élisabeth Moquin, Thierry Clouette, and Élisabeth Giroux, offer a very dynamic and modern vision of Québec traditional music.
Their musical arrangements are shaded with influences of folk, progressive rock, and classical music interpreted on fiddle, Irish bouzouki, and cello. Élisabeth Moquin also adds a special colour to the group’s appeal through her masterful step dancing. The musical vision of the three performers is presented in their original compositions and unusual arrangements of traditional tunes. With rich vocal harmonies, musical drive, instrumental virtuosity, and remarkable on-stage complicity, É.T.É transforms the traditional kitchen party into an unforgettably entertaining and lively performance.
É.T.É’s first album entitled "Le boire des minuits" was released in 2017. Since then, the group has received an award in the category Émergence of the Grands prix Desjardins de la culture de Lanaudière 2017 for new young groups in 2017. They also received a prize voted by the public during the Cabaret festif 2018 and more recently the "Discovery of the Year 2017-2018" OPUS AWARD.
"É.T.É. made its debut at the 27th annual New World Festival (Vermont) this September. This talented and engaging trio was a big hit with our audiences. Their creative arrangements reflect a contemporary vibe without losing the connection to its traditional roots. Their stage presence is delightful, their vocals are beautiful, and Élisabeth's dancing is a joy to watch. Throughout the Festival process they were a pleasure to work with. I look forward to having Élisabeth, Thierry, and Élisabeth, three wonderful people, back again very soon!" Kevin Dunwoody, Artistic Director
